Auditions will be held in person at Elgin Community College. Please note, a brief symptom screening survey and temperature check will be conducted upon arrival, and masks are required at all times. Wind & brass players: slit masks and bell covers are required to be worn during your audition (DIY fabric coverings are fine).

Please add office@eyso.org to your safe senders list, as you will receive important communications about auditions and the 2021-22 season via email.
