The JSYO serves more than 400 talented musicians from all over Northeast Florida through six levels of ensembles – two full symphonies and four levels of string ensembles – that vary by repertoire and technical advancement. Regional satellite sites now offer beginning to intermediate ensembles for students musicians in the early stages of their musical instruction. The JSYO season begins in September and ends in mid-May but includes holiday breaks.
Students are admitted through introductory interviews or competitive auditions held each spring. Students interested in interviewing (Foundation Strings I) or auditioning (all others) for the JSYO should view the ensemble audition guidelines below.
