The audition fee is $30 per musician and is due prior to the audition date. After submitting this application, you will receive an email payment request which you can pay online using PayPal or credit card.

The General Auditions will be held over the course of two weeks -- on two consecutive Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays of March & April 2020: 3/26 (TH 4-9 pm), 3/27 (FRI 4-9 pm), 3/28 (SAT all day), 4/2 (TH 4-9 pm), 4/3 (FRI 4-9 pm) and 4/4 (SAT all day).

While we are happy to consider applicants' requests to audition for a particular SJYS ensemble/orchestra, the final decision will be made by the auditioning judge, assuring that the placement best suits their musical capabilities and background. The judge's decision is final.
