Welcome to the Emory Youth Symphony Orchestras!

Auditions for the 2020-2021 Season will be held on August 15-16, 2020 at the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts on the Emory University campus. As Emory University, Emory Healthcare, and the Centers for Disease Control work to establish plans for Emory’s fall semester, EYSO will align its plans for the fall with the guidance and best practices of these institutions.  Check back in early summer for important updates.

Audition scheduling will be administered via Emory’s eAudition system which will be available in late Spring, 2020. Visit the auditions page for further information.
