The online sign-up for Audition Times has opened. Musicians who completed their application form and paid their audition fee received an invitation via email. If you have applied to audition but haven’t received an email to sign up for a time, please email the CSOYO Manager at

Audition time sign-up will close on Monday, May 13, 2019. Any applications received after that day will be scheduled in August 2019 and applicants, if selected, will be placed at the end of their section. 


CSOYO 2019-2020 Auditions will be held on May 16, 20 and 21, 2019 at First Baptist Church, 401 Gateway Avenue, Chattanooga, TN 37402, EXCEPT FOR PERCUSSION AUDITIONS, which will be held at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga, at the Music Annex, 825 McCallie Avenue (enter under the brown striped awning).

APPLICANTS should arrive 20-30 minutes prior to your scheduled audition time. Enter the church parking lot from Cameron Hill Circle and park in the upper lot above the church (to the left of the main door). Enter at the main door and check in. You will be taken to a warm-up room until your audition time. Parents may wait in the lobby. Sometimes audition times will run early or late due to various circumstances. Please be flexible as you wait and we will make every effort to conduct auditions in a timely manner.

AUDITIONS WILL BE BLIND and applicants should NOT speak to the Judge under any circumstances. If an applicant has a question about anything regarding the audition, they should step outside the audition room and ask the Monitor for assistance. Instructions will be given by the Monitor prior to the audition, and written instructions will be available on the music stand in the audition room. Scale sheets or books and rehearsal copies of music may be used during the audition. In addition, the Judge may give directions verbally, but the applicant should not speak to the judge.

AUDITION RESULTS will be mailed to all applicants. Letters should be sent out by June 1, 2019 unless special circumstances arise. Please do not call or email the CSOYO Manager for results, or to ask when letters will be sent. Our goal is to notify everyone as soon as possible. Check this page for updates. If you have not received a letter by June 15, 2019, please contact the CSOYO Manager for assistance.
