For the 2013 – 2014 season, PVYO will offer a Concert Band for students in grades 6 through 9 in addition to our 9th through 12th grade PVYO Wind Ensemble. Robert Dahlin, long-time PVYO conductor and 2006 – 2007 Montgomery County Teacher of the Year will lead the ensemble in its inaugural year. This is a wonderful opportunity for young wind students to develop their skills in an encouraging, fun and enriching environment! *Symphony Orchestra audition requirements have been adjusted to accommodate the change in grade levels and to align with the new PVYO Concert Band. Strings may perform a solo in place of the posted etudes/excerpts and the wind and percussion students may substitute a solo with the county and state audition excerpts. Please refer to the 2013 – 2014 PVYO Audition Requirements for details. *The PVYO Symphony Orchestra and Concert Band will rehearse on Tuesday evenings.
