At the CYSO, we know that in-person auditions and chair tests sometimes don’t show students at their absolute best, so we have made ALL auditions video auditions.  This way, students can record their pieces as many times as needed in the comfort of their own homes, and just send us what they are comfortable sharing!

Audition and Video Submission Steps:

1. Fill out the 2021-2022 audition form by clicking HERE.

2.  Record a short video containing: 2-3 minutes of a solo/selection of your choice, and send it to

And that's it! Due to to this past awful year, we will not be charging an audition fee.  You're welcome, and we are excited for you to come and join us!

We will email you within 48 hours with your result :-)
