Join The Conservatory Program
Make great music, meet new friends, and create exciting lifelong memories at San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory!
We commit to giving aspiring musicians from all backgrounds and corners of the San Diego region a place in one of our rigorous ensembles.
Registration for Mid-Season Auditions is now open! Deadline to register is Friday, October 25.
Please note that Mid-Season Auditions are for NEW students only.
If you are a current Beginning Strings or Debut Winds student wishing to audition, please email Brenna Casey at email@example.com.
At San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory (SDYS), we offer every student musician at any level the opportunity to participate in one of our 12+ orchestras and wind ensembles. Sign up on our interest list below.
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.
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 in early-June (or August if you are new to SDYS). To learn more about our ensembles, please visit our Ensembles page.
