COYO students currently enrolled in the Fall 2019 term, may request an audition for moving to a different ensemble. Please indicate on the registration form.


The Fantasia Orchestra welcomes students who have played a string, woodwind, brass or percussion instrument for at least one to three years. This ensemble takes the place of our Junior Symphony. It is designed to introduce playing in an ensemble, sharpen and refine technical skills, while playing great music and having great fun! An Audition is more of a 'meet & greet' with the audition judges and is required to become a member of the Fantasia Orchestra.

The Concert Orchestra takes the place of the Youth Orchestra and includes students with 3-6 years of experience and will serve as the largest full symphony group for COYO. An Audition is required to become a member of the Concert Orchestra.

The Camerata Symphony is our newest ensemble for advanced musicians that successfully demonstrate a level of playing equal to the Oregon High School All State Audition requirements. An audition is required for the advanced orchestra.
