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 and Concertino 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.
