Auditions to join the MYSO Fall Season will be July 15 through August 31, 2019. MYSO has four orchestra levels – beginner, advanced beginner, intermediate, and advanced – and musicians audition to be placed into one of those levels. Auditions are to include a short music selection of your choice and a scale. Auditions are to be recorded via video and uploaded to YouTube.
Record a few minutes of your best playing and a scale in one take. You may play any complete piece, concerto, etude, etc. with or without piano accompaniment. Visit the Auditions page on our website for each orchestra's scale and music requirements.
