Audition Information

Audition Date: Saturday, August 24, 2024

Time: 9am-4pm

Location: Advent Lutheran Church, 1775 E. Market Street, York, PA, 17402


NOTE: An etude (such as the PMEA requirement) is perfectly acceptable in place of a solo 

Auditions for the YYSO are open to all string, wind, brass, and percussion students in grades 9-12. All current and former members of the YYSO, students attending public, private, cyber, and charter schools, homeschooled students, and any college students 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 school orchestra director (or band director if school does not have an orchestral program). 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.

The YYSO rehearses on Saturday mornings from 8:30-11am from September-May at William Penn HS in downtown York. There are no rehearsals from Thanksgiving to New Year's. The concert dates this year are scheduled as November 18th, March 16th and May 11th. The first rehearsal is scheduled for September 9th.
