SELECTION OF CANADIAN MUSICIANS

YOA CANADA annually holds nation-wide auditions to select Canada’s most exceptional young orchestral musicians to participate on full-scholarship in YOA ORCHESTRA OF THE AMERICAS. A coordinated network of Canadian professors, instructors, performing artists, and orchestra administrators oversees this process. Each year 5-10 Canadian musicians, ages 18-30, faithfully represent their country in this Hemispheric ensemble. There is no cost to apply. All participation costs are sponsored.
