The priority audition period for the 2020-21 BPYO season is in May. Any remaining open positions will be filled by a second round of auditions in early September. 

This year's auditions must be submitted on video by May 22, 2020. 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 bpyo@bostonphil.org and we will assist you. 

Please prepare two contrasting pieces or movements of the highest level that showcase your musical and technical abilities, as well as designated orchestral excerpts (posted below). BPYO auditions may also include an informal interview, to be scheduled separately after we receive your application. Inquiries about auditions should be directed to the BPYO office, 617.470.8382 or bpyo@bostonphil.org
