Whether you’re simply curious to get to know ESYO or want to audition for the upcoming season, sit in and play with one or several of ESYO’s ensembles! If you like the experience and would like to audition, stay for a few minutes and play for the conductor of the ensemble. Check this online form to see when rehearsals take place and sign up right away! Again, all you need to prepare is a short solo piece and a scale that represents your playing.
