AUDITION INFORMATION

By: Editor  Published: 12/4/2014


Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Everett Youth Symphony Orchestras.

The Everett Youth Symphony is comprised of two skill-graded orchestras and two chamber orchestras for advances students. All are led by outstanding professional conductors and music educators. EYSO orchestras rehearse every Monday during the school year and present three public concerts throughout the season. EYSO provides exciting challenges and opportunities to every young musician from the beginner to the advanced.

Placement in a group is based upon skill and experience as demonstrated in the audition. Returning musicians must audition each year.

EYSO 2014-15 season auditions held by appointment.
