Who can audition?
EUJO is open to all young musicians, local to Exeter. Typically, it is mostly students at the University of Exeter who make up the society, however there have been several members in recent years from outside of the University. As long as youâ€™re enthusiastic and passionate about playing there is no bar who can try out.
What experience do I need?
Any experience â€“ members from the past have been involved with school bands/county bands/ National bands (NYJO)
Grades â€“ not a prerequisite, but give some indication as to level of playing. Typically looking for grade 6/7+, but not at all a requirement!
The Audition format
- One prepared unaccompanied piece
- Short bit of sight reading
