MYA Auditions begin in March each season and will end the beginning of May. Auditions for the 2013-2014 Season are currently posted, more dates will be added on a regular basis. If the dates listed do not work for you, please exit out of the page. If you choose a date and you need to change it for any reason, there is a $30 rescheduling fee. Entrance into all programs, except Reading Orchestra is based on the result of an audition. All auditions are taped and reviewed by a committee of ensemble directors in early May. Placement decisions are announced in May and after that, auditions are held only for open positions. We recommend that students apply for an audition as soon as possible.
Prospective students and their families should become acquainted with the various programs offered by Midwest Young Artists. Visits to our regularly-scheduled rehearsals are always welcome and attendance at MYA concerts is strongly encouraged!
All auditions take place at the MYA Center. For more information and directions about this facility, click here.
