When are the Next New Member Auditions?
New Member Auditions are scheduled for June 2nd, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM at MassBay Community College, Framingham. See below on how to register.
Admission to Metrowest Youth Symphony Orchestra (MetYSO) and Metrowest Repertory Ensemble (MRE) is by audition and they will be placed either in MetYSO or MRE based on their skill level. Typically, members have studied privately for at least two years at the time of their audition, however we encourage exceptional students to contact us. MetYSO members must be studying with a private teacher during MetYSO's season. Most MetYSO members have some experience in ensemble play.
We are currently auditioning all instruments; however, please be advised that we may not be able to place everyone who is auditioned. We especially encourage brass players to audition. Generally, unless required by a piece we will perform, MetYSO does not audition guitar and saxophone. The audition committee will recommend placements into the MetYSO Orchestra or the Metrowest Repertory Ensemble (MRE). Candidates who are not admitted to MetYSO or MRE at their first audition are always welcome to re-audition.
Auditions are held three times a year in May and in late August for the fall semester, and in early January for the spring semester.
