Audition Instructions

PLEASE NOTE: Our June 2017 festival has concluded.  Application and audition instructions for NOI 2018 will be posted in October 2017. 

Wind, String and Harp applicants are expected to perform a live audition. Exceptions will be made for applicants that live more than 100 miles from their closest audition site. NOI will now accept video auditions from wind, string, and harp applicants if they live more than 100 miles from the closest audition location.

Live auditions will be approximately 10 minutes in length and will be performed without accompaniment. Audition appointments are limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Walk-in auditions are accepted at each site only if space is available.

Percussion applicants must submit a video audition.

To register for a live or video audition, please visit our Apply page.
