Audition dates and application deadlines will be published here in June.
First round auditions in Austria and France have already taken place.
The Selection Process:
EUYO works very closely with its local audition organisers in the 27 EU countries. They are responsible for the delivery of the EUYO auditions in their country and we appreciate this collaboration very much.
In several countries where candidate numbers are high or for other administrative reasons there are two rounds of auditions. The panel of the first round of auditions is provided by the local organisers and can consist of one, two or several jurors. Due to the large numbers of applicants there will be a first round of video auditions in Spain and Belgium. Please look at the application form of Belgium and Spain for details. Successful candidates will be informed as soon as possible after the first round that they will be invited to the final round. Please note that it can take a couple of weeks until results of the first round will be sent out, due to the high number of candidates.
Final (second) round:
At the final round of auditions you will be heard by ONE experienced EUYO panel member. However, to ensure a fair judgement all auditions will be recorded on video so that they can be judged by a panel specific to your instrument and compared with all other audition candidates across Europe.
Our tried and tested audition process is designed to ensure fairness across different instruments and countries. This is our highest priority. Your audition is only the first stage of our judging process, as it is followed by an extensive moderation process to guarantee fairness. Your audition will be approximately 8 minutes long in which you will play your solo piece and the excerpts. We conduct all auditions in person because meeting the candidate is very important to us.
