The priority audition deadline is May 16. Any remaining openings will be filled in a second round of auditions in early September. 

The auditions this spring will be via video. The audition form and instructions are available at https://bostonphilyouth.getacceptd.com. 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. Pieces from different styles and time periods are encouraged. Please also prepare the designated orchestral excerpts for your instrument, posted below. If you would like to substitute other excerpts from the standard repertoire, please email bpyo@bostonphil.org for approval. BPYO auditions may 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
