Audition for 2021-2022
Thank you for your interest in auditioning for The Metropolitan Youth Orchestra of New York: Choral and Orchestral Programs!
We will reopen video auditions August 2, 2021 to fill any remaining positions in our 2021-2022 MYO Choirs and Orchestras. You may attach your 2021 NYSSMA recording (with or without piano accompaniment) to the MYO Audition Registration form if you wish, and we will waive the personal introduction requirement.
Please see our sample audition video.
