Current and prospective members audition each season before a panel of independent judges and ESYO Conductors in order to determine the best placement based on demonstrated technique, skill, and aptitude.
ESYO auditions are held each year for young musicians, like you, who are interested in performing with ESYO jazz, classical, and percussion ensembles. Each program has a different set of guidelines and expectations. If you are a folk or bluegrass musician, you do not need to audition, but you do need to submit a placement video.
Before taking an audition or submitting your placement video, take time to understand the expectations and requirements of your program.
Do the best you can, but don't worry! Here are tips to help you prepare for your ESYO audition.
