St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra Auditions

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 musicians of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, and for the chance to play with a large ensemble of musically accomplished peers. Many YO musicians go on to pursue careers in music with the confidence and knowledge gained through their experience with the YO, including two current members of the SLSO. Learn more about our Youth Orchestra and its available orchestra auditions.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2024/2025 season.

The deadline to apply is March 31, 2024. If you have any questions, please contact Samantha Sachtleben, Youth Orchestra Manager, at samanthas@slso.org.
