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 required scales as listed.
A non-refundable audition fee of $35.00 must accompany the application. Applications will not be processed until the fee has been received. You can pay online here, http://mkt.com/fsyo/fsyo-audition-fee
