With numerous ensembles and orchestras suiting a range of playing levels, ESYO provides serious youth musicians of all abilities the opportunity to excel, grow and perform. ESYO strives to inspire each musician to explore their true potential through high-level performance opportunities, training with outstanding conductors and coaches, and tutelage from extraordinary guest artists.
Whether you are just starting out, or you are an experienced player, whether you are a jazz or classical musician, ESYO has a place for you. Click below to learn more about ESYO’s progressive program.
To enroll in any of ESYO’s full-season performing groups, you need first to sign up for an audition. Auditions occur each June, with additional auditions through the fall to fill any vacancies. Concertino Winds & Percussion are 10-week introductory programs that require only a teacher’s recommendation for admission.
Due to the progressive nature of ESYO’s performing groups, members and prospective members are invited to audition on a particular instrument, rather than signing up for a specific ensemble. We rely on a panel of experienced judges and ESYO Conductors to place musicians in the ensemble most suitable to challenge their abilities, support their growth and inspire a joyful pursuit of musical excellence.
