Thank you for your interest in joining the National Youth Orchestra of China’s 2020 Sinfonietta Series, and welcome to our audition portal!
All auditions are conducted virtually, with candidates submitting their application materials through this website. Specific audition requirements vary by instrument, but all applicants must provide 1) a résumé, 2) a one- to two-minute video essay explaining why they would like to be in the orchestra, and 3) videos of various requested performances. These recordings entail one to two solo pieces (either a piece of your choice, or of several given options, depending on the instrument), and three to four mandated excerpts.
All Chinese citizens (including those from Hong Kong or Macau, and regardless of whether or not they currently live abroad) who will be between the ages of 14 and 21 for the entire duration of the 2020 season (from July 10 to August 8) will be eligible to apply. This includes anyone born between August 8, 1998 and July 10, 2006.
Applications are due by 23:59 CST (China Standard Time) on February 17, 2020. Decisions will be released on about two weeks later.
Every applicant will receive written feedback from our judges – professional musicians with credentials from top conservatories in the United States or Europe – regardless of whether they are eventually selected as a member of the ensemble.

Overview of Program
The National Youth Orchestra of China is excited to present the 2020 Sinfonietta Series!
In commemoration of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, NYO-China will be upsizing its ordinarily anticipated chamber series into a sinfonietta comprising 46 exceptionally talented musicians. With an ensemble of this size, students will be able to perform masterworks of the Late Classical as their composers intended.
This July, students from all over China (including many studying at prestigious conservatories abroad), will gather on the campus in China to participate in a residency with some of the world’s leading Chinese-speaking orchestral musicians - often principal players at internationally renowned orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic and the San Francisco Symphony. Following two weeks of intensive rehearsals, master classes, workshops, and one-on-one lessons, students will embark on a two-week concert tour with Music Director Emeritus of the Seattle Symphony Ludovic Morlot, they will entertain audiences across China before ultimately traveling to Moscow for a final concert at the historic Tchaikovsky Hall.
Altogether, the program will last from July 10 to August 8.
Each spring, students apply through a competitive and egalitarian online audition process. Applications are initially judged by professional musicians at some of America’s premier professional orchestras and are later reviewed by members of NYO-China’s faculty themselves.
To ensure that no excellent musician is ever turned away for lack of funds, the entire program – including housing, tuition, and travel – is free of charge.

Note on Language
While English proficiency is certainly welcome, it is by no means necessary. Students will be solely evaluated on their musical skill and potential, and their ability to speak or understand English will not affect their chances of admission. Furthermore, faculty and staff will be fully bilingual to ensure ease of communication throughout the residency and concert tour.
