Auditions: Festival Orchestra

Be a part of “one of the finest high school orchestras in the United States!”
James Jordan, former Director of Music, NYS Council on the Arts
Hoff-Barthelson Music School’s Festival Orchestra is a full symphonic orchestra for high school students at the highest level of technical ability and musical artistry. Under the direction of Jun Nakabayashi, the Festival Orchestra performs three concerts annually; two are with guest artists of international stature. The final concert of the season is held at the Performing Arts Center at Purchase College.
The Orchestra meets on Tuesday evenings from 7:15 – 9:30 pm. Members of the Orchestra participate in sectional coachings with members of the New York Philharmonic at the School. Auditions are open to the public. Students not yet in high school, but who demonstrate exceptional ability and maturity, may also audition.
