Young Artist Auditions

Young instrumentalists are invited to audition for the Seattle Symphony’s Young Artists program. This program is a two-round audition process, which includes a taped round and a live audition. Finalists who are invited to the final round will audition for a panel including Principal Guest Conductor and Music Director Designate, Thomas Dausgaard, on April 8, 2019. A small number of Young Artists will have the opportunity to be featured with the Seattle Symphony in the 2019–2020 concert season.

All instruments are eligible to apply. Applicants must submit a written application, a recording with accompaniment, list of prepared orchestra repertoire, letter of recommendation, biography and headshot.

We are no longer accepting applications for our 2019–2020 season. Please check this page again in September 2019 for information on our next Young Artist Auditions.
