The Fox Valley Academy of Music Performance invites student-musicians, ages 7- 18, to audition for its 2016-2017 season. The orchestra is principally looking for string and woodwind players. For the auditions, students should prepare scales and a solo or ├ętude. Auditions are scheduled for Sunday, August 28th by appointment at Our Savior Church in Aurora. (The FVAMP is not affiliated with any church denomination.) Rehearsals begin September 11th at Eden Supportive Living in North Aurora.

The Fox Valley Academy of Music Performance includes the Access to Music program, the Youth Strings Orchestra, the Academy Orchestra, and the adult Philharmonic Orchestra. Ensembles rehearse on Sundays from September through April, and have an additional summer program. Members of the FVAMP represent more than sixteen communities in and around the Chicagoland area.
