Philharmonia Members

Welcome!

Welcome to the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra’s (MYSO) 65th season! I am very excited about your participation in Philharmonia this year!  

We are planning to return this fall by forming two smaller orchestras from within Philharmonia. This will allow us to physically distance during rehearsal, and it will give us the opportunity to program music we wouldn’t normally perform such as Beethoven’s 1st Symphony and Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake Suite. I think you’re going to love playing these pieces! For the time being, we’ll need to rehearse one orchestra on Wednesday evening and one on Thursday evening. We’re asking MYSO families to be especially flexible as we plan for safe and responsible inperson programming this fall.

To get started:

  1. Begin preparing for your seating audition by clicking on your instrument under “Seating Audition Requirements & Excerpts.” 
  2. Find what orchestra you have been assigned to by viewing the rosters of the two orchestras below. 
  3. Review your orchestra’s parts and recordings linked below. Assignments will be made in September as a result of your audition.

Thank you for being a part of the MYSO family!  I’m looking forward to an outstanding season, and I wish you all the best as you prepare your seating auditions. 

Mr. Duffy, Music Director
