Audition for the 2022-2023 Season

We welcome you to sign up to receive an alert when info and excerpts are released for the next LYO auditions. We want YOU to join us for an exciting season of learning, performing, and making new friends!

The LYO includes 8 ensembles that meet a wide range of skill levels from beginner to advanced and everything in between. 

 

Auditions are essential for placement in the appropriate ensemble. All returning LYO students also audition each year.

  • Auditions include a scale, 2 music excerpts, and short sight reading. These musical excerpts will be shared in the coming months.
     

  • Audition dates: August 27-28 and September 3-4, 2022 at Louisville Collegiate School. Registration is required. Stay tuned—an additional date and location will be added in West Louisville this year.
     

  • Generous need-based scholarships are available for qualifying families to assist with membership costs.
