Clinton Symphony Orchestra
Annual Young Artist Auditions
Clinton Symphony Orchestra’s Young Artist Auditions will be held in early January, and we suggest that you begin now to plan for entry. Some students will be preparing a college audition this year or in the next few years, and we think this audition experience and critique will be of value to them.
EACH entrant will receive personal performance evaluations from
the panel of adjudicators.
The auditions will be held Saturday morning, January 10, 2015
at Morrison High School.
Student musicians in grades 9 through 12 are eligible to participate. One student will be invited to perform his/her piece in concert at Morrison High School Auditorium on February 28, 2015, accompanied by the Clinton Symphony Orchestra.
The student invited to perform on the concert will receive a $250 award, and an alternate will receive $100 from the Symphony.
• Entrants must audition with a composition intended for performance with orchestra
accompaniment, and for which orchestra accompaniment parts are obtainable.
• The piece should be a least 5 minutes, but not exceed 15 minutes in length.
• Entrants must be residents of either Clinton or Jackson counties in Iowa, or Whiteside or Carroll counties in Illinois.
• Entrants will provide their own accompanists for the audition.
Please confirm that the piece they choose for audition is appropriate for this occasion, and that orchestral accompaniment parts are domestically available. Contact us early with questions about eligibility, audition scheduling, or selection of an appropriate audition/performance piece.
Entries for the Young Artist Auditions must be received by

This is Clinton Symphony’s 61st season, and the student auditions and performances have been an important part of our history. Past participants have gone on to become prominent music teachers,performers, and conductors, as well as leaders in other professions. This year’s honoree will be an important part of that succession.
