We are so excited to partner with the Convention and Trade Center as well as the Schwob School of Music for our Fall 2020 rehearsals! Please check out the following information as we enter our 27th season of making music together!

Fall 2020 Orchestra Rehearsal Schedule

Fall 2020 Percussion Rehearsal Schedule

Mandatory Virtual Open House

YOGC will host a mandatory Open House via Zoom on Monday, September 28 at 6pm. All returning, new, and auditioning students and at least one guardian must attend. During the open house, we will discuss the safety protocols for rehearsals, the artistic plans to have a great fall semester, and answer any and all questions you have!

Zoom Meeting Invitation


Any musician active in YOGC as of March 9, 2020 may skip the audition process and automatically be re-enrolled in YOGC for the 2020-2021 season if they are happy with their ensemble placement.
Therefore, you only have to audition if one of the following conditions is true:
  1. You were not in the String or Youth Symphony Orchestra during the 2019-2020 season
  2. You were in the String or Youth Symphony Orchestra at some point during the 2019-2020 season but had dropped out before March 9, 2020
  3. You were in the String Orchestra for the 2019-2020 season and would like to try and audition into the Youth Symphony Orchestra.
For those of you who are interested in auditioning for the woodwind, brass, or percussion sections: even with this decision, YOGC has at least one opening in every section available for potential new musicians. If you are interested in playing with YOGC this season, please be sure to register or email us at info@yogc.org.
For those of you who will be auditioning: Please submit an audition video following YOGC’s audition requirements via email to info@yogc.org by Monday, September 28 at 5pm.
For those who are eligible to skip auditioning but have already paid the registration fee: We would be very grateful if you would be willing to convert the $10 fee into a tax-deductible donation. YOGC lost over $20,000 in revenue due to COVID-19 in the 2019-2020 season, and we anticipate additional funding reductions in the 2020-2021 season. Please reach out to us at info@yogc.org to confirm this choice or discuss additional options.

We are working hard to continue to serve our community and have created a compilation of FREE music and music education resources available right now, which you can access here.
