FSYO auditions are for standard orchestral instruments and are held annually for both new and returning members. There are a limited number of positions available in each ensemble, and an audition does not guarantee placement in FSYO.
Acceptance and orchestra placement is a competitive, merit-based process in which auditionees must meet requirements for consideration.
Auditions require that students prepare the specific excerpt listed for the orchestra for which they are auditioning, as well as a one-minute solo of their choice and scales as listed.
Excerpts can be downloaded below and students are encouraged to meet with a private instrument teacher to properly prepare their solo and scales.
