Auditions for the 2013-14 PYSO ensembles will be held on May 18 & 19, 2013 at Oak Avenue Intermediate School.
If you are still interested in applying for PYSO, please contact Alex Chu at email@example.com ASAP.
There is an Application Fee of $30 for PYSO payable online at the time of registration. PYSO also accepts checks by mail. Checks must be received by Friday, May 17, 2013. If no payment has been received (either by secure online payment or check by mail) the student may still be allowed to pay the audition fee at the time of their audition. However, the application fee will then be $40.00 on the day of the audition.
Each applicant will have access to a warm-up space before his/her audition.
