Audition Process 2021-22

Only two steps are needed to audition: 1 - Submit Audition Form and 2 - Pay Audition Fee. Our acceptance rates are very high so we encourage you to register; auditions also help our directors to place students in the appropriate ensemble. 

 

If you are accepted to an LYO ensemble in Sept, there will be one additional step: 3 - Pay Membership Fee.

 

Students who register to audition will receive a specific date and time as we compile our auditioning numbers. These will be scheduled to take place in-person at Louisville Collegiate School throughout the following dates: Aug 28 (strings), Aug 29 (winds/brass), Sept 4 (strings), and Sept 5 (winds/brass), based on various factors. Haven't heard from us yet? Dates/times will be emailed mid-August for students who register before then.

Before you begin, be sure to read the Audition Information page for your instrumental section:

Strings

Winds & Brass

Percussion

Harp & Piano

Everything you need is on this page but if you have any questions please contact us at auditions@lyo.org
