NEW Audition Process for 2020-2021

Due to current social distancing guidelines, BSYO will require a video submission of your prepared audition materials instead of holding live, in-person auditions this May/June. 

Audition materials must be submitted by Monday, June 22 at 11:59 pm.

Instructions on how to submit your video can be found HERE.

If you have an extenuating circumstance (e.g. you do not have access to your instrument or equipment to make a video), please email


The BSYO is comprised of three ensembles tailored to specific age groups and skill levels, offering each student individualized attention and a supportive, collaborative performance environment. 

  • Each orchestra rehearses weekly on Sunday afternoons at the Carver Center for Arts and Technology.
  • BSYO requires that all musicians take weekly private lessons on their instrument for the duration of the season.
  • BSYO strongly encourages all musicians to participate in their school music programs.
  • Each musician is assessed an annual tuition fee. Need-based financial aid and scholarships are available.
