AUDITION FOR THE 2024-25 SEASON

The Audition Fee is $35

through August 2

We encourage you

to register by August 23.

If the audition fee is a financial barrier prohibiting you/your child from auditioning, please reach out directly for assistance at info@lyo.org.

On August 2, the audition fee

increases to $50 due to the work related to last-minute registration, so please don't wait to sign up! 

We want YOU to join us for an exciting season of learning and performing a wide variety of music and making new friends! The LYO includes 8 ensembles and over 400 students that serve a wide range of skill levels from beginner to advanced and nearly everything in between.

 

Your placement hearing is our opportunity to discover where you are on your musical journey so that we can place you in an ensemble that will help you grow without being too difficult.  

 

We are committed to finding a place within LYO for each student that wants to join us. Generous tuition assistance is available.  We are committed to reducing barriers to participation, especially financial ones. Application for tuition assistance will be available later this summer.
