ATLANTA The Georgia Piedmont Youth Orchestra, a competitive orchestra for high school students, will hold auditions on Saturday, Aug. 23 from 9 a.m. to noon at Centennial High School in Roswell.
Students interested in auditioning should go to www.GPYOA.org to fill out an audition form online. They will be contacted with further information about their audition time and excerpts required for each section.
The orchestra will be conducted by Rolando Salazar, former assistant conductor of the GPYO and currently assistant chorus master and conductor of the Atlanta Opera. Students involved with the orchestra have said they feel the orchestra helped them to create a stronger sense of discipline, confidence, self-esteem and a deeper sense of appreciation for the music they play.
The GPYO will begin its season on Sept. 8.
