Have you dreamed of playing in CYSO? Make that dream a reality—New student auditions are open now!
New this year, you can now register to audition for any of our on-site programs—orchestra, steelpan, and jazz! No matter the ensemble, we provide young musicians with the tools they need to grow and thrive. Students learn from the city’s top educators and collaborate with young people who share their passion for music.
Auditions take place each spring at our offices in Chicago’s Loop. Ensembles are open to young people ages 6-18 and need-based financial assistance is available for all programs.
