To enroll in an ESYO Classical Ensemble, you need to complete an audition.
With 7 classical ensembles and orchestras suiting a range of playing levels, ESYO challenges you to excel, grow, and perform. An ESYO audition is not a competition, it's a process that helps ESYO conductors place you in an ensemble based on your musical experience. There is a place for you!
