YOSA has made my appreciation for music grow even more. I loved every second of my YOSA career.”

YOSA Orchestra auditions are open to young musicians ages 8-20. Auditions for the upcoming season take place each June. YOSA is committed to making our activities accessible for families, regardless of financial constraints. There is no fee to audition for YOSA Orchestras.
