Assistance in payment of the audition fee will be considered for those with financial difficulties.  Please approach the orchestra in this regard by emailing youth@randsymphony.co.za.

Candidates are to supply their own accompanist for the audition. As there is only one piano available at the audition venue, piano concerti need not be accompanied.                 

Candidates can expect auditions of longer works to be curtailed at 8 minutes, to allow adequate time for all applicants.

Successful candidates will be expected to attend at least three Tuesday evening rehearsals prior to the concert, the general rehearsal on the afternoon before the concert, and the performance.
