The Georgia Piedmont Youth Orchestra is accepting applications to audition for the 2017-2018 season, the fifth season for North Fulton’s premier youth orchestra.
High School Students are welcome to audition for all positions on Saturday, August 19 from 9:00 a.m. to noon at Centennial High School. See audition requirements and the registration form.
This season is under the baton of Rolando Salazar. Maestro Salazar is currently the Assistant Conductor of the Atlanta Opera.

Orchestra and Band members should seriously consider auditioning for this challenging experience.
Membership is open to all qualifying high school students. The GPYO has drawn players principally from Cobb, Gwinnett and Fulton counties, as well as Forsyth County to the north. Musicians from at least 16 high schools (grades 9-12) as well as private and church schools have already become members.
The GPYO closed its fourth season with an outstanding performance of patriotic music at the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta on May 30, 2017. The performance consisted of a similar repertoire that was played on Memorial Day at the American Legion Post 201 in Alpharetta. Photo by Kathleen Carpenter
