Primary auditions for the three WCYO ensembles (described under the Ensembles tab) take place in early June.  However, some fall auditions will be held in late August and early September and applications for select instruments are scheduled throughout the year.  The application form may be completed online or printed. Upon receipt of the form and non-refundable application fee of $40, an audition will be scheduled.

Auditions for the 2021-22 Season will be in-person or via zoom and you will be asked your preference on the application.

The COVID-19 health crisis affects us all.  WCYO, by its very nature, requires our ensembles to assemble.  We are preparing now for our 2021-22 season as assembly restrictions are being lifted; we remain hopeful we can have a full year of rehearsals and concerts. WCYO will deliver on our commitment to the young people we serve and remain responsive to the  health mandates, gathering restrictions and facility availability challenges we face. Please contact us at if you have questions or concerns.  We are eager to serve as your community youth orchestra.
