Musicians ages 6 to 20 are invited to make an audition appointment with ECYS. Individual audition appointments are made year-round, based upon openings in the program. Candidates must study with a private teacher, and have had at least one year of lessons to be considered for placement.
We have limited openings for select instruments at all levels. If you are interested in auditioning for the current season (2016-17) please contact the Office before applying.
