Thank you for your interest in joining the Grand Rapids Youth Symphony and Concert Orchestra!
This website will allow you to schedule your audition, track the status of your audition afterwards, and gain access to members-only information once you’ve joined one of the orchestras, should you pass your audition.
The system will create an account for each student and for at least one parent or guardian per student. Families can pay the audition fee from either the student’s or a parent’s/guardian’s account. If you are registering multiple siblings, you must submit one registration form for each student, but you may use the same parent account(s).
If you are already a member of the Youth Symphony or Concert Orchestra, please log into your existing student account and choose the “Audition for Next Year” link at the top of the page.
NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking students to upload a video recording of their prepared audition piece, scales and sight reading rather than scheduling in-person auditions. Please use the student account for the audition, uploading the video through this site. To avoid bias, we will remove the video portion of the file and provide only the audio (without your name) to the judges, but pre-screeners will use the video to make sure you have performed your own audition. Instructions for what to include in the video will be provided on the audition form.
If you get the message “You are already registered” above, please click here to log out in a new window (it will show you a log in form: don’t log in!), then close that window and reload this page.
