Application for auditions for the projects of Jong Metropole in 2021 is no longer possible. Normally Jong Metropole organises a Spring Tour and a Summer Tour. This year, the Spring Tour will be moved to the autumn due to the measures surrounding COVID-19. Musicians who have applied for the auditions for the Spring and Summer Tours now audition for the Summer and Autumn Tours.
Because auditions cannot be held in a live setting due to the COVID-19 measures, applicants must record and submit two videos. You can find more information about how this works on our web page Video auditions. You can find the orchestra line-up under Programme & planning. On How to prepare you will find all information you need about the audition. Informatie about the jury can be found on the Jury page and the procedure after the auditon is decribed on After the audition.
Auditions for Jong Metropole are (if circumstances permit) 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 Spring Tour and a Summer Tour.

All students meeting the conditions (see Audition and musicians) can apply. Applicants accept the Audition and participation regulations upon their application.

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.
