PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY

CONGRATULATIONS to all who auditioned; we heard a total of 332 auditions this cycle and are thrilled to release the 2017-2018 roster below. Our thanks to the many private and high school teachers and the families of the students who supported this process. If you were not successful as either a prospective or returning member, we would definitely encourage you to keep music as an active part of your year; it was a pleasure to hear everybody who auditioned.

Accepted students have until 12:00pm Tuesday, August 22 to decide on their membership. Please email Dr. Prior by the deadline once results are posted ONLY IF YOU ARE NOT intending to accept your place ([email protected]Any student who defaults on their commitment will be ineligible to re-audition until Fall 2019.

The first all-string rehearsal is Wednesday, August 30; the first full symphony rehearsal requiring winds and percussion is Wednesday, September 20. Full attendance is mandatory at all rehearsals.

The non-refundable tuition fee for 2017-2018 is $600 for the year and due at the first rehearsal. Because of generous ongoing support from Emory University this is an all-inclusive fee for the season; there are no additional fees for the audition, folders, music, t-shirt, parents’ association etc. Full and partial tuition scholarships are available. Consideration for scholarships is based on the needs of both the student and the program. Please email Dr. Prior directly for more information.

All musicians will bring their tuition to their first scheduled rehearsal (strings August 30, winds and percussion September 20). Checks should be made payable to Emory University (not EYSO). Cash payments are accepted; a receipt will be issued for all cash payments.

“Playing in EYSO has been one of the best orchestral experiences I have ever had. I’ve learned so much, and played  such wonderful repertoire by composers like Holst, Shostakovich, Dukas, and Tchaikovsky. EYSO helped me to learn how to take musical risks as a player, and I’ll never forget the lessons I learned.”
