Metropolitan Youth Symphony Orchestra Holds 2020-2021 Virtual Auditions

Published: August 3, 2020.

The Metropolitan Youth Symphony Orchestra is currently holding auditions for the upcoming 2020-2021 Season.

Protecting players is MYSO’s first and foremost priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. MYSO has developed policies to secure the safety of every musician in the orchestra. Players will wear face coverings and be assigned their own music stand to ensure social distancing guidelines. Rehearsals will take place in the spacious St. Charles Borromeo Convocation Hall on the campus of Lewis University in Romeoville. The fall concert cycle will feature a string orchestra. Wind, brass, and percussion musicians will be welcomed back to MYSO in January 2021. MYSO is, however, currently accepting all musician submissions through August 19, 2020.

MYSO currently has openings in all sections of the orchestra:  violin, viola, cello, bass, harp, oboe, flute, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, trombone, tuba, and percussion. Players seeking to join the orchestra can visit for audition requirements. Membership in MYSO consists of junior high and high school students from over 21 communities surrounding the Joliet area, as well as students from Lewis University and Joliet Junior College.

MYSO rehearses Wednesday evenings during the school year from 6:15 to 8:45 p.m. at Lewis University. The orchestra normally performs six concerts during each season. Concerts are held at Lewis University, Joliet Junior College, and Joliet Bicentennial Park.
