St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra Auditions

Talented young musicians join the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra for a number of reasons — for the challenge of playing advanced orchestral repertoire, for the opportunity to work with the world-class musicians of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, and for the chance to play with a large ensemble of musically accomplished peers. Many SLSYO musicians go on to pursue careers in music with the confidence and knowledge gained through their experience with the SLSYO, including six current members of the SLSO.
