Your job is to be the best audience you can be for the other orchestras. Stay in the auditorium and listen to the performances. No chatting. No electronic gadgets, please. Hear something you like? Write it down! Maybe we can play it sometime! We have been included with the very best youth orchestras in the state, because, well, look at us! I'm sure you will enjoy their music!
All performances are recorded. You want your recording to be great! Don't do anything that will affect the other recordings.
Clothing: Please be sure to wear the "uniform" of the orchestra. This includes a black suit coat, white shirt, and BLACK BOW TIE! Yes, men, I'm talking to you! :)
