YOSAC AUDITION INFORMATION

 

The auditions for the 2017-2018 season are available year round by appointment only.  While YOSAC membership is generally for the complete school year, students who participate in school marching band or who just wish to join at a later date will still be able to audition and join our programs in January or March.  Please complete the audition application at www.YOSAC.org  . 

 Once your application is received, you will be contacted to confirm your audition date/time by email.  All new and returning students that wish to advance to the higher orchestra will need to audition.  The conductor would also like to meet with returning students to discuss goals for the coming school year (no audition needed).

 It is very important to be prepared to the best of your ability for your audition, for it will determine your acceptance and seating within one of our orchestras.  However, auditions are very relaxed and low-key, so don’t stress out! Dress is casual.
