Returning Musicians

Welcome Back!

Each year we encourage returning musicians to apply for the Orchestra at the next level. Whilst it is standard for musicians to spend 2 years in each Orchestra, auditioning is an excellent opportunity to test yourself and build this important skill. 
As a Returning Member please apply using the Audition Application link you were emailed to access your discounted $50 Audition Application fee. If you need this link to be resent, please contact [email protected]

If you have missed the application deadline for SYO 2024, please submit an Expression of Interest or contact us to ensure you receive the latest information.

Musicians who play more in-demand instruments such as Viola, Double Bass, Bassoon, Trombone, Tuba, and Percussion are encouraged to contact us. Late applications may be accepted based on available places in the program.
