The FINAL 4 is part of the orchestra's education outreach program INVITATION TO PLAY.
Students participating in the FINAL 4 have been recommended by their music teacher, school Music Specialist or Orchestra Director who then works with the student to prepare the music they will perform at the auditions.
Each student must memorize one piece of music from the standard string repertoire of no more than 7 mins. for the audition and provide their own accompanist if needed.
Maestro Fernandez, Conductor and Music Director of the orchestra, selects the four (4) most outstanding student musicians to be presented as Guest Artists.
