Application Deadline: Tuesday, August 1, 2023

Since our founding, ESYO has upheld an important promise to our musicians— anyone who successfully auditions for an ESYO Ensemble is able to participate, independent of financial considerations. Musicians may apply for need-based tuition assistance by completing and submitting an application. Applications are due by Tuesday, August 1, 2023.

Musicians may also apply for financial aid to cover the cost of private lessons as well as instrument rental and purchase.

 All financial and personal information is held in strict confidence. Unfortunately, we are unable to process incomplete applications.
