The mission of FLCYCO is to inspire music appreciation and excellence among children ages 12-18, and increase community awareness of and participation in the musical experiences of the youth of Folsom Lake College’s service area (Rancho Cordova, Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park, Shingle Springs, Placerville and surrounding communities). The Folsom Lake College Youth Chamber Orchestra is made possible thanks to the generous donation of The Robert S. and Star Pepper Foundation.
We offer positions for the following instruments: violin, viola, cello, and bass. NOTE: Auditions for the 2014-2015 season will be held on Saturday, May 24 as well as on Saturday, May 31 and Sunday, June 1, 2014 in the Harris Center for the Arts on the campus of Folsom Lake College. The address is 10 College Parkway, Folsom, CA 95630.
Audition requirements will include: a concerto of the candidate's choice (1st or 3rd movement), from the standard repertoire, and excerpts from repertoire that will be given upon registration for an audition slot.
Student placement is competitive, and is ranked in order of artistic quality. Those qualities include superiority of tone, intonation, vibrato (as appropriate), dynamic range, musicality, and general accuracy. The audition will be adjudicated by highly qualified professional musicians.
