The Philharmonic consists of auditioned high school musicians, who rehearse on Wednesday evenings and perform concerts each fall and spring. String students should be comfortable in first through fifth positions, have a solid knowledge of note values, dynamics, key signatures, off-the-string playing, and be able to play major scales up to 4 sharps and flats. An audition is necessary and private lessons are required. The strings students should be able to play the equivalent of Suzuki book V and up. The Philharmonic also provides a Concerto Competition for members to compete to perform a concerto with the orchestra. The competition is held every January, with a spring semester performance. A WYSO Solo and Ensemble Night is offered each May, featuring individuals and small ensembles from the Philharmonic.
