The priority audition deadline for the 2021-22 BPYO season was in May, but we still have some openings to fill in a second round of auditions in early September. 

The audition form and instructions are available here. There is a $15 audition fee (charged by Acceptd). If you are unable to pay the fee, please email and we will assist you. 

Please prepare two contrasting pieces or movements of the highest level that showcase your musical and technical abilities. Pieces from different styles and time periods are encouraged.
