2016 Auditions

Thank you for your interest in performing with the Jazz Standard Youth Orchestra on our Jazz For Kids program. It’s audition time and we look forward to meeting new friends and catching up with current members and hearing about their progress. We hope to welcome back alumni for special events along with new members.


Have at least two selections ready that best showcase your present level and be prepared to be asked to play with fellow members auditioning – it makes our auditions a lot of fun while we get to hear you.


Auditions for 2016 will take place at Church Street School Of Music and Art in Tribeca on October 2nd and 9th at 11am. Please email jazzinspires@yahoo.com marked for attention of Emily Elyshevitz and be sure to tell us the applicants, name, instrument(s), age and school. Additionally please cc david@davidorourke.com.

Please also indicate your preferred date for the audition if you do indeed have a preference.

There is no curriculum for the audition and please understand we may not be able to answer all your emailed questions as we get close to audition time
