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. 
 
Audition Fees: A non-refundable audition fee of $35.00 must accompany the application. Please make checks payable to FSYO.
 
Annual Membership Fees: FSYO has a strong commitment to the community and will never refuse a student the opportunity to participate because of an inability to pay the membership fees. Please contact the office for scholarship and payment plan opportunities. In addition to annual fees, students are also required to purchase uniforms.
 
2015-2016 membership fees:
 
Overture Strings: $345
Prelude Orchestra: $485
Philharmonia Orchestra: $535
Symphonic Orchestra and Percussion Students: $585
 
Orchestra Age Requirements: The FSYO has set age guidelines for each orchestra. The majority of FSYO students fit into the following age groups, but, upon request, exceptions are considered on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the FSYO Board of Directors, in consultation with the conductor(s):
 
Overture Strings: Students ages 7 to 14
Prelude Orchestra: Students ages 9 to 15
Philharmonia Orchestra: Students ages 11 to 18
Symphonic Orchestra: Students ages 13 to 20
