Director / Conductor
The Symphony Orchestra performs 3-5 concerts a year, including a side-by-side concert opportunity with the Arapahoe Philharmonic. Repertoire will be selected from a range of great classical composers like Beethoven, Mozart, and Mussorgsky, as well as contemporary pieces from Film and other popular media. Students will also get the chance to perform a work by the resident composer with the Arapahoe Philharmonic! Concerts will be at varying venues in and around the Highlands Ranch area.
The Avanti Youth Orchestra will also be featured in select numbers at one or more performances of a professionally produced opera between Avanti and the Arapahoe Philharmonic. This project will feature the Arapahoe Phil's Sinfonietta and will be produced annually in the spring.
Auditions are required for enrollment in the Symphony Orchestra. Ages range from 8-18. Rehearsals are held weekly at Avanti Music Academy, and take place Sunday afternoons from 5:00pm-7:30pm.
Auditions will be held at Avanti Music Academy. Please come in on Sundays during a rehearsal at 5pm for a quick audition, and stay for a session, on us, to see how you like it!
To Audition, please feel free to come to ANY of our rehearsals on Sundays 5-7 (starting August 26th). Please give us a call or an email to let us know you are coming. At this rehearsal, you can either sit and watch our orchestra, or if you feel comfortable you can join in and play along. During your visit, we will have you play a short solo for the conductor and likely one or more of the coaches. This is a free, no-obligation visit.
