Your audition video is a key element of your application to NYO-USA and/or NYO2. Please see the sample video above, based on the NYO-USA 2013 clarinet excerpts, for reference, bearing in mind there are many recording environments and a wide range of equipment that will produce a successful video. An NYO2 audition will have somewhat different content based on those requirements.
If you do not have access to video equipment or space with a piano needed to make an audition video, you may wish to ask if your teacher, school, or orchestra/ensemble program is able to help you support your application. Should you need additional assistance, please contact NYO-USA staff at email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or 212-424-2024. We will be happy to work with you so that you will have the opportunity to record your audition successfully. For questions about uploading videos, DecisionDesk offers technical support that you can access at any time while logged into the NYO-USA or NYO2 application.
Where possible, we encourage you to keep the following in mind when making the recording:
