The audition panel will make seating recommendations at the time of audition, which are adjusted when positions are accepted. There is no compelling musical reason to place players from strongest to weakest – in fact, just the opposite. In the WAYO we often rotate players around, and in the younger orchestras this is encouraged. Conductors of the string orchestras may choose to do so, in order to provide the experience of sitting in different positions. Players learn to play next to different players, and also learn that an orchestra is made up of equally valuable sections, not just the first violins.
