Lyceum Symphonic Winds is the newest addition to the largest, most comprehensive youth orchestra program in the state. Symphonic Winds offers youth ages 12 to 18 an opportunity to make music with motivated musicians of like age and ability. Intermediate woodwind, brass, and percussion students with two or more years of experience playing are encouraged to apply. Students should read music and play with good intonation and tone.  We encourage but do not require students to be studying with a private teacher. If you are not sure whether or not this ensemble is right for you, feel free to send in an audition, or reach out for more information at Lyceum@AHSmail.com.


Submitting an audition has never been easier! Click on the button below to answer a few basic questions and submit your audition video link. Most students use a cell phone recording of a solo, scale, etude, or their favorite excerpt from a piece they are playing in band. We just want to hear your musician playing their instrument!

The audition video should include 3 to 5 minutes of solo playing including a scale of your choosing. Percussion auditions should include basic snare drum and mallet technique. If you have already done an in-person audition or have already been invited to join the ensemble, click the button below to submit your application but feel free to leave the audition link submission portion blank.
