Great Miami Youth Symphony Auditions!
General auditions for all members will be held at Hamilton High
on Thursday and Monday; September 17 and 21, from 4-7pm.
Each student gets 5 minutes.
1. A prepared piece of the student’s choice
2. Scales up through 4 sharps or flats at least one octave (my choice-so be ready!)
3. Possible sight reading
Rehearsals will begin on Monday the 28th of September, 6:00 until 7:30 p.m.
Fees will remain at $100 for the year again. Please use the link here to pay in full, or set up a payment schedule. We prefer this method, but payments in full may be made with a check made out to the HFSO. Please put your child’s name on the memo line of the check.

We will rehearse beginning at 6pm this year, and end at 7:30 on Monday evenings.
That’s a minor shift, which should enable those in various Marching Bands the ability to get to us.
First Concert will be on Monday; November 23 at 7:30 p.m.
That’s the Monday before Thanksgiving.
We plan to be visiting the string programs of Hamilton; Fairfield and Talawanda to hear students.
