2019-2020 Audition Information

Auditions for the YYSO are open to students in grades 9-12 and through four years of college. All current and former members of the YYSO, students attending public, private, cyber and charter schools, homeschooled students, and any college-age students through four years of college are encouraged to audition for a player position in the orchestra.


Members of the YYSO must also be active and in good standing with their school’s music organizations. In cases where extenuating circumstances prevent student artists from being active in their school’s ensembles, a written letter of permission to be a member of the YYSO must be obtained from the local band or orchestra leader. In the event that a student and their school director are not able to resolve this issue, the YYSO conductor should be contacted and the matter will be addressed by the YYSO conductor with the school conductor.


Players' fees for the 2019-2020 season are $175 per student, paid in full the day of auditions. Cash, check and major credit cards are accepted. Funds will be returned if the student is not accepted into the orchestra.


Please direct any questions regarding auditions, forms or music excerpts to YYSO.
