With COVID-19 on the minds of many, we wanted to update our community as well as prospective members about the current status at GSYO:

Currently, GSYO staff and faculty are all well and working remotely. Please email us if you have questions! We will do our best to reply as quickly as we are able, but please do be patient with us as our hours vary. If you have specific questions about rehearsals, concerts, or Office-related items, please email Executive Director Seth Ducey at

We are holding auditions for the 20-21 Season! This season we are accepting video submissions. Detailed instructions are outlined on the Audition Requirements page.

We are still accepting applications for all open positions. Please see the individual orchestra requirement pages for open instrument listings.

Take care!
