2020-21 Season

Audition Requirements, guidelines, and other info

This season, NYS will hold online auditions. Audition submissions will be uploaded to Acceptd. Students will be asked to submit one continuous video with scales, solo repertoire, and orchestral excerpts, along with a headshot. For those interested in the Music Theory/Aural Skills class, you will be given a questionnaire to complete. Final video submission is due August 24th at 11:50 pm.

Step 1. Look through the scales, solo, and orchestral excerpts requirements below so you can prepare.

Step 2. Look over the guidelines for an acceptable video submission.

Step 3. Submit application materials

*Orchestral Excerpts:

Each returning musician should prepare the excerpt assigned to their 2019-2020 Orchestra. If the student wishes to be considered for the next tier orchestra, please also prepare the excerpt assigned to that orchestra.


Musicians new to NYS should prepare the orchestral excerpt that best demonstrates your level of expertise, in consultation with your music teacher.
