Auditions

RSYO Auditions (click here for RSJSO Audition Information)

Audition Date: (8/25/2020) – Auditions will run virtually this year. The audition window will be open from August 29, 2020 through September 19, 2020. Please view the information below on how to submit your video audition.

Unfortunately, we will only be accepting string players for the beginning of the season. We are hoping to add wind, brass, and percussionists soon.

As of now, our plan for RSYO is to create small chamber string orchestras that can rehearse independently and within ongoing healthy and safety guidelines and restrictions. More information will come out after auditions.
