The Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestras have decided to change the audition process this year for the 2020-2021 season from scheduled live auditions to having all applicants submit an unedited video audition. We have determined that not only will this be the safest alternative to an in-person audition experience, but it will also give applicants greater flexibility in submitting their best audition during these challenging times. Percussion applicants, however, will still be scheduled for an audition to be determined at a later time in the fall.
While these audition videos will determine enrollment in the PYSO program for the 2020-2021 season, placement in a specific PYSO ensemble will not be finalized until the season begins. All students will have additional testing and sight reading during the first two weeks of the season to ensure all students are placed in the ensemble that is the best fit for their ability.
Auditions for PYSO’s upcoming 2020-2021 Season are now open!
