Auditions Extended to September 10th
Tuition Payments Extended to September 13th

The CSUN Youth Orchestras will return this season. All three orchestras will be filling spots for
complete string sections. Information on how we are moving forward with woodwinds,
brass and percussion is included below.

The CSUN Youth Orchestras will abide by L.A. County Department of Health and campus
protocol throughout the season. We are happy to offer a slightly reduced tuition for this season
and we will not be charging for tickets for our first two performances of the year!

We will be starting on-campus rehearsals on the weekend of September 18 & 19.



If you plan on returning to the same ensemble that you were in last year or during the
pre-Covid season, all you need to do is to pay your season tuition and you have your spot back!
As added incentive, for this season, we have reduced tuition slightly from our pre-Covid rates.
Full season tuition will be $600 this year.
Our tuition link with payment options will go live on August 1st.
Woodwind and brass, please read below.



If you are a returning member who would like to audition to move on to a new ensemble, you
will need to submit an audition form and video by August 20th.
Your audition result will be e-mailed out by August 30th and tuition will be due soon after.
Full season tuition this year is $600.
Woodwinds and brass, please read below.



All auditions for new members will be done by video submission.
Please go to our application and audition link. Look over the video audition requirements
carefully and then download and fill out the audition application. Once you have your video link
ready to add to the application e-mail us with your name and
instrument in subject heading. We must receive this by August 20th. If you are unable to
prepare by that time, we will accept late applications until September 10th.
There is no audition fee. Season tuition is $600.



To start this season, only our top group, The Philharmonic, will be accepting wind applicants.
We hope to offer the opportunity for wind spots in the youth symphony later in the season.
New student woodwinds, brass, percussion must be in 9th through 12th grade to audition.
We hope to offer wind spots to middle school students later in the season.

Woodwinds, brass and percussion who would be returning to the Philharmonic should e-mail Dr. Roscigno to let him know your intention to return.
Do not pay tuition yet. You will be notified by September 6th on our plans.
We just need a little more time to navigate some
campus protocol issues.

New students wanting to audition for the Philharmonic woodwind, brass and percussion
sections should fill out the online audition form and prepare an audition video.
This information should be e-mailed by August 20th.
Please put your name and instrument in the subject heading of the e-mail.
We will let you now by September 6th what your audition result is and how we will move forward. Do not pay tuition until instructed to do so.

If you have any questions, please e-mail us.
