Audition for Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras

Now accepting audition registrations, the Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras (NMYO) is looking for young musicians to join its ensembles for the winter and spring session of its 2022-2023 Concert Season.
If your child is looking for a great place to play their instrument, perform in concert, and socialize with other young musicians who enjoy playing as much they, then NMYO is the perfect place!

String musicians, with at least one to two years of lessons, are invited to audition. Woodwind and brass students, who have played for at least two years and are taking private lessons, are also welcome. Get more information, view audition requirements and register for your audition today at

NMYO offers six ensembles this year including two levels of string ensembles, two full orchestras, a wind ensemble for intermediate and advanced winds, brass, and percussion, and a flute choir.

Symphony Orchestra musicians present a chamber music concert in March and all of the NMYO ensembles perform in the May Afternoon of Spring Concerts. The string ensembles will also present a special concert for the Ipswich Council on Aging.

NMYO’s Gold Benefactor and Conductors Circle sponsors are the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Cape Ann Savings Bank, Coburn Charitable Society, Creative County of ECCF, Cummings Properties, Demoulas Foundation, Institution for Savings, and Johnson String Instrument-Carriage House Violins.
