Lincoln Youth Symphony - Auditions

Evening All!

Thank you for auditioning today, and welcome to Lincoln Youth Symphony. 

We are still looking for more horns, trombones, flutes, and violins, etc. Tell your friends!

Our first rehearsal is this coming Saturday, September 21, 8:30 to 11:00 am, at Promontory School, 1051 W 2700 S, Perry. Please arrive early so we can be set up and prepared to play on time. We will be checking out music, and will have a few more auditions before rehearsal begins.

Our Parent Meeting is after rehearsal the following week, September 28th, 11:00 am-12:00 pm. Plan to turn in tuition or set up payments; attendance at this meeting qualifies you for a small discount. Please plan to attend. 

October 25-26 is our retreat to Camp UTABA in the beautiful Ogden Valley. It takes the place of rehearsal that week. We will need chaperons, so let me know if you are interested. If you haven't signed up to take the ACT that weekend, don't! If you have, there are still parts of the retreat you may be able to participate in. It will be a fun, intensive mini-music-camp and get-to-know-each-other experience; you won't want to miss it.

Please read the Membership & Tuition page on the website, and familiarize yourself with the LYS Calendar. We will be taking Fall Break off -- no rehearsal Oct 19.

Please contact us with any questions.
