Thank you for registering to audition for MYSO’s 2021–22 season.
We ask you to create an audition video which we will use to make an appropriate placement for the 2021–22 season. Videos may be submitted beginning April 1 and will be accepted until all positions are filled.
Since you will be creating your own video, you may record and re-record until you are satisfied.
For musicians auditioning for the wind ensemble, orchestras, and flute ensembles, please record the following:
When recording your chosen excerpt, you must use a metronome, and set it so that the beat is clearly heard in the video. Select a tempo that is close to the printed tempo and that you can comfortably play.
If possible, your excerpt should feature one tempo. Selections with brief moments of rubato (or similar) markings are fine as long as the original tempo resumes after a few measures. If a true change in tempo is marked between sections of your excerpt, please take a moment to reset your metronome before continuing.
Free metronome and tuning apps are available for smart phones and other mobile devices through your App Store. Physical metronomes and tunes can be purchased from your local music store or online. These are extremely important and helpful tools to help any musician grow and progress in their musical studies.

We are very happy to receive auditions made with a smartphone. If it’s reasonably clear, we will be able to use the material. If there are issues, we’ll get in touch with you.
You can make your video wherever you’d like, but consider playing in a larger space that sounds good to you. Please dress appropriately as you would for something important like…an audition!
Your video does not need to be made in one take—we just ask that the separate parts of your audition (Scales, Solo, and Excerpt) not be edited and be played straight through. Please create one video file that includes the scale, solo, and excerpt material.
Submit your video via the form below beginning April 1.
Find joy, passion, and inspiration at MYSO.
