Audition Information

Auditions are required for new members entering the Shoreline Youth Symphony Orchestra, Inc (SYSO, SYCO, & SYSE). Auditions are held in June and again in September if there are still openings for instrumentation. The audition is to make sure that the student is advanced enough to have a positive orchestral experience. Auditions are by appointment only and will be held at Daniel Hand High School, 286 Green Hill Rd, Madison, CT 06443.

Auditions for the 2023-2024 season will be held on Monday June 12, 2023.


The student will play a scale and solo piece of their choice and short sight­‐reading excerpt. The SYSO and SYCO audition pieces and scales should be at or above the level of the CMEA regionals audition selection for your level (high school and middle school, respectively). These scales and solo pieces can be found at under Auditions and Festivals.


Please use the buttons below to navigate to the audition requirements. If you have any questions regarding your audition or what to perform for the audition, you may submit your question by contacting the conductor when you submit your audition request.


There will be a parent representative from SYSO at the audition to answer any questions that you may have. We look forward to hearing from you.
