Auditions

Auditions for ensemble placement in the 2022-2023 season will be conducted via self-recorded video (smartphone videos are okay!) and will consist of two steps. Instructions for submitting a video audition will be emailed after the registration process has been completed. Recordings are due Sunday, August 7 for guaranteed placement by the first rehearsal of Fall Term. Early submissions are encouraged. However, auditions for all ensembles types will continue to be accepted and placements will be made on a rolling basis during the first couple of weeks of Fall Term. Winter Term registration is also available. Students who register after August 7 for Orchestra or Band will receive updated instructions to complete the audition process.

Auditions will begin to be accepted on June 1, 2022, please do not submit your audition before this date.

If you are unable to submit a video audition, please complete the registration process and check the box at the end of the registration form that indicates you need an alternate way to audition and you will be contacted by MYS staff.
