CSYO is open to instrumentalists in public, private, and home-school settings. CSYO musicians are generally in grades 7-12; however, younger students with exceptional talent and potential may be considered. Placement is based solely on skill level, not age or school grade. Each member must be willing to demonstrate a high level of commitment and professional attitude.
Auditions are held in late fall each year. Returning members do not have to re-audition. However, performance of appropriate excerpt is required for seat placement. New Members are required to audition.
