Audition Information & Requirements
EYSO is for everyone. For instrumentalists from 4th grade to college, playing for 2 years or 12, EYSO aims to find a place for each student to grow in one of our five orchestras. Click here for a breakdown of membership requirements by instrument and ensemble.
In light of ongoing precautions put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, auditions for EYSO’s 2020-21 season will not proceed in-person. Instead, students will upload videos and adjudicators will review them virtually. Results will be announced by mid-June 2020.
We have simplified the audition requirements to reflect the limitations of the uploaded video format. Click here for detailed video audition instructions & requirements. Video uploading will become available on May 11, 2020, and video submissions are due by 11:59pm on May 27, 2020.
The 2020-21 EYSO Audition Application is available online beginning February 1, 2020.
