PYSO Auditions

Live auditions for new members in the 2018-19 season have now concluded.

However, there are still openings for Percussion and Horn.  If you are interested in more information about Percussion or Horn auditions, please send us an email with “percussion audition” or “horn audition” as the subject line.

The next round of auditions for all other instruments will be in the Spring of 2019.

PYSO Auditions for each upcoming season are normally held in the spring for entry into the orchestra in the fall. Updated excerpts and audition procedures for ALL instruments are posted each January. Please check our website in January for details. It is the student’s/parent’s responsibility to check the website for changes or updates each year if you wish to audition. Feel free to email us with any questions you may have.
