2021-2022 Season

New Member Audition Application

Musicians ages 6 to 18 are invited to make an audition appointment with GSYO. 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.

Before you apply for an audition:

  • GSYO is accepting video auditions for the 2021-22 season. Carefully read the requirements that are posted for each orchestra and ensemble, and prepare your audition accordingly.
  • If auditioning for the current season, check that there are openings for your instrument at your desired orchestra level. When there are no openings, applications will be held until either a position becomes available or the open Spring audition period begins, whichever comes first. In the Spring, there are openings for all instruments at all levels!
  • There is a $25.00 audition fee due when you fill out the application. This fee is NON-REFUNDABLE. 
  • If you have any questions, please email
  • Interested in the Senior Symphony Orchestra? Please note the following: Musicians who are accepted to the Senior Symphony must attend the Summer Retreat, Aug. 1-6, 2021, and the Symphony Summer International Tour to Germany and Poland, June 21, 2022 - July 2, 2022
  • All applicants will be notified of the results of their audition by e-mail. Placement decisions of the conducting staff are final and non-appealable. If accepted into one of the orchestras, students will be sent enrollment information including information on annual season fees.
  • All orchestra members are encouraged to participate in school music programs when such programs exist. By participating in a school music program, you benefit by playing every day, becoming a better sight-reader, and playing an important part in helping to build meaningful music programs in your schools and communities.
  • GSYO gives equal membership opportunity to all individuals regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender expression, citizenship, disability, or geographic location.
