As a consequence of the current development of the corona-situation, we have had to postpone the auditions for DUEN – as of now indefinitely. We will still be accepting applications, but the application-deadline is suspended. We will of course announce a new timeframe for the auditions, as soon as it is possible.
DUEN and Morten Ryelund
If you play the violin, viola, cello, or double bass, you can win a spot in DUEN – The Danish National Youth Ensemble.
We strive to make DUEN auditions a positive and constructive experience for all candidates. Therefore, the jury will take their time to sit down with each individual candidate and give him/her constructive criticism and good advice for the future.
To apply for the DUEN auditions, you must be:
- at least 17 and no more than 26 years of age on January 1st, 2020
- a Danish citizen or enrolled at a Danish educational institution
Winning a spot in DUEN guarantees a two-year membership. After two years, you are required to apply again.
DUEN consists of approx. 25 musicians, so there might not be enough vacant spots for all candidates. We have a list of qualified substitutes that we refer to in case we are in need of musicians for a project, so participation in DUEN projects is a possibility even though you might not be awarded a membership.
March 27th in Aarhus
March 28th in Odense
March 29th in Copenhagen
We are more than happy to find alternate solutions for candidates who might not be able to show up on the above-mentioned dates.
- A short solo piece (or excerpt thereof) lasting approx. 5 minutes
- A handful of short excerpts from DUEN’s repertoire. These will be sent by mail after the application deadline.
There will not be an accompanist, but you are welcome to bring your own. This is however not a requirement.
The auditions will last approx. 15 minutes including feedback.
