Upcoming 2024 Audition Dates – To Be Announced

Thank you for your interest in joining the Singapore National Youth Orchestra. Applications for our 2023 auditions are now closed. The SNYO audition dates for 2024 are to be released. Please check this website again.

For those who intend to apply to audition again, do note that the SNYO will only be able to consider your application after one year (from your most recent audition date), in order for your musical development and for you to demonstrate progress with significant improvement in your playing, as well as to ensure that other eligible audition candidates have the opportunity to attend the auditions. We seek your understanding that the SNYO is unable to provide feedback regarding all auditions due to the high volume of audition applications that we receive.

All the best for your audition preparations!
