The Chamber Music Program is open to members of The Youth Orchestra, Philharmonic Orchestra, and Wind Ensemble. If you indicated interest in the Chamber Music Program on your FWYO ensemble application, you do not need to submit additional materials – your FWYO ensemble application will satisfy all requirements, and we will contact you. If you did not indicate interest on your application, please email for the next steps!


When specific instruments are needed to complete chamber groups, the FWYO Chamber Music Program is also open to students who are not currently enrolled in an FWYO ensemble. To apply, students not already enrolled in an FWYO ensemble must submit an application and audition video for the Chamber Music Program, meeting the requirements listed below.

All applicants are expected to have played their instrument for at least 2-3 years and must be able to read music and demonstrate basic ensemble skills. Please note that participation in the Chamber Music Program cannot be guaranteed due to varied instrumentation demands from semester to semester. Students who participate in the fall semester do not have to re-audition in the spring.

Applications for the fall semester are due August 1st. Applications for the spring semester are due November 1st.


1. Click here to submit an online application. (TBD – email for next steps)

2. Submit an audition video following these requirements (5-10 minutes total):

  • A selection that demonstrates your highest level of technical proficiency. This may include but is not limited to scales, arpeggios, virtuosic etudes, or a showpiece.

  • Selections may be performed with or without accompaniment.
