Auditions for Jong Metropole are held once a year at a location in the Netherlands. Based on these auditions, the organisation assembles the orchestra and chooses the programme for the full season, consisting of a Summer Tour and Spring Tour. Musicians who would like to audition for a position in Jong Metropole should register first via our Application portal. There will be no pre-selection. All students meeting the conditions (see Audition and musicians) can apply. Applicants accept the Audition and participation regulations (only available in Dutch, translation will follow shortly) upon their application. Please read these rules and regulations carefully before accepting. If you are interested in auditioning, please check Programme & planning for upcoming projects and important dates.
Good to know
All auditions for Jong Metropole are being recorded on film to facilitate consultation between jury members or to compare auditions of different candidates while discussing the audition results. Recordings are only kept for this purpose and are not shared with third parties or made public. It is possible for candidates to request a recording afterwards, once the results have been announced.
Candidates may bring a representative from their conservatoire to attend the audition for coaching purposes. This representative is not allowed to consult with the jury members and is not admitted to the deliberation of the jury. Attending auditions by anyone else is not allowed.
