How do I know what ensemble I should be in?
YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THAT! Musicians are placed in the ensemble appropriate for their ability through the annual audition process. To learn more about our ensembles, please visit our Ensembles page.
How do I audition to join an SDYS ensemble?
All musicians are strongly encouraged to actively participate in their school/college string, band, or orchestra program. The opportunity to participate and grow as musicians in a collective school ensemble is a vital and valuable experience. SDYS seeks to partner with school music programs, not replace them.
