If you’re a young, aspiring musician, pay attention.  The West Michigan Youth Symphony and Music Director/Conductor Daniel M. Meyers are seeking musicians for the 2012-2013 season.

They are holding open auditions Tuesday, Aug. 28, beginning at 5p.m. at Muskegon Community College.  All orchestral instruments are welcome and encouraged to audition. Students with at least one to two years of experience through college sophomores who are members of school music ensembles are eligible to participate.  Scheduled auditions are required.

On Aug. 28, student violinists will also have the opportunity to audition separately for the position of concertmaster.  For the first time, this position will be designated as a tuition-free position. Students must be advanced violinists in eighth-grade or above in order to audition.

For more information or to schedule an audition, just call 231.855.6010,  or e-mail Gabe Slimko at

Eligible students may also earn college credit from Muskegon Community College for participation in the West Michigan Youth Symphony.

The West Michigan Youth Symphony has been a part of West Michigan for over 40 years.   They have welcomed young musicians in the West Michigan area from more than 30 schools, as well as home-schooled students.  They hold rehearsals on Tuesday evenings from 6-8:30 p.m. at Muskegon Community College from September to April. Concerts are scheduled on Nov. 18 at the Dogwood Center for the Performing Arts in Fremont and March 17, 2013 at the Frauenthal Center in downtown Muskegon.
