Cape Symphony Youth Orchestra

Cape Symphony Youth Orchestra Auditions Open

Auditions for the 2022/23 Cape Symphony Youth Orchestra season will be held on September 10: 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Barnstable Campus and 3:00 to 5:00 PM at the Falmouth Campus. Sign up to audition!

The Cape Symphony Youth Orchestra (CSYO) Program is a year-round program that consists of three ensembles: CSYO, Repertory Winds & Strings, and the new Repertory Percussion Ensemble.

Members of these groups will learn to rehearse and perform like the Cape Symphony, exploring the beauty and intricacy of history’s greatest compositions while continuing to grow their musicianship and technical ability. We welcome all young musicians from ages 12 to 21 who play orchestral instruments to audition for placement in one of the three ensembles.

The new Repertory Percussion Ensemble will be devoted to preparing and performing percussion ensemble repertoire while learning to play a wide range of symphonic percussion instruments: timpani, bells, xylophone, vibes, marimba, chimes, bass drum, drum set, and auxiliary percussion.

Audition information is available on the Cape Symphony website and students are urged to sign up for an audition slot as soon as possible. Participation in the Cape Symphony Youth Orchestra is free to any student taking private lessons at the Cape Symphony. Special thanks to the generous support of the Bilezikian Family Foundation and Hermann Foundation.
