About the Application
Am I eligible to audition?
Musicians ages 6 to 20 are invited to make an audition appointment with ECYS. Individual audition appointments are made year-round, based upon openings in the program. Candidates must study with a private teacher, and have had at least one year of lessons to be considered for placement.
Is there an audition fee?
Yes. ECYS requires a non-refundable audition fee of $25.00, which must accompany the application.
How do I choose which orchestra to audition for?
Review the audition requirements for each ensemble to determine which group you think you may be qualified for.
What if I choose the wrong orchestra when I fill out the application? Will I still receive placement?
You will be considered for all GSYO ensembles regardless of the orchestra selected on the application. You should be as accurate as possible when selecting an orchestra to audition for as it helps us send you to the correct faculty member.
If I only wish to participate in Summer Conservatory, do I still have to audition?
Yes. Current GSYO members must audition for seating placement, and new auditionees must audition for correct class placement and seating assignments.
