Whether you are a classical or jazz musician, ESYO invites young musicians to audition.

Be challenged and inspired by outstanding conductors and coaches.
What are summer auditions? To join an ESYO performing ensemble, you must complete an online audition. Summer auditions are held each year to welcome new musicians before rehearsals begin and are open to most instruments. Summer auditions remain open until each position is filled. A panel of independent judges will review your summer audition and place you in an ensemble that will challenge you and support your growth as a musician.
Summer auditions are open to most instruments. For a complete list of available instruments visit
