Audition excerpts will be available now

Audition signups are now open until August 25, 2021.

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 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.
