The NEC Youth Symphony (YS) is composed of advanced young musicians, most between the ages of 13 and 18. Members are selected from hundreds of applicants through annual auditions. YS is open to advanced pre-college string, wind, percussion, brass and harp players.
As one of NEC's senior Preparatory School ensembles, the Youth Symphony has performed in NEC's Jordan Hall, Symphony Hall, and the Boston Opera House in a collaboration with the Boston Ballet School.
Additionally, this orchestra tours internationally every two years. In the summer of 2013, the Orchestra completed a 9-day tour of Costa Rica. They will tour again in the summer of 2015.
Rehearsals: Saturday, 3:15 - 6:00 PM in Williams Hall

The NEC Prep Orchestra Program holds auditions each May for the following academic year. Orchestra auditions are not held for specific orchestras, rather students are placed into an orchestra based on their audition. We begin scheduling May auditions in March of each year. To sign up for a May audition, click here. For those admitted into the orchestra program, seating auditions are held in early September. Additional entrance auditions may be held in the Fall for select instruments, on a space availability basis only. For more information about Fall auditions or to sign up for an audition, please call (617) 585-1160 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
