Welcome to YOL!

YOL is going to have an in-person 2021 Spring Season.

The Spring Season will start on Saturday April 10th with a workshop 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and continue with Sunday rehearsals April 11th thru May 9th 2:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m., ending with a concert on May 16th.


Please fill out the Registration form. There is a $30 Registration fee (this registration fee is applicable whether you audition or not).


Auditions will be held on March 6th for students who are new to YOL or for students who are moving up to a different orchestra. Those students who are wishing to stay in their current orchestra do not need to audition (this applies only to this 2021 Spring Season). Deadline to sign up for the March 6th Audition is March 5th.

Auditions will be virtual. FIND AUDITIONS SIGNUP HERE

Students not auditioning need to register by March 1st


Need-Based Scholarships for the 2021 Spring Season will be available, deadline is March 8th, 2021.


All YOL rehearsals, concerts, and activities will follow the safety guidelines and protocols recommended by the CDC and LISD, including (but not limited to): symptom and temperature checks, mask requirements, social distancing, hand-washing, and disinfecting of surfaces.

YOL will be rehearsing at the LHUCA (The Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts) and The Legacy Event Center this Spring. These sites have been chosen based on being able to provide a safe environment with plenty of room for social distancing even at lower Covid-19 occupancy levels and appropriate disinfection protocols. These facilities are closed to the public on Sundays, therefore there will only be individuals associated with YOL and the necessary LHUCA and The Legacy Event Center staff in the building during YOL rehearsals.

Students must bring a music stand to all rehearsals.

YOL currently has position opportunities for Orchestra Managers for all three orchestras. Please see more information about Orchestra Manager duties under the Orchestra Manager’s Program listed in the ABOUT tab.  

The Youth Orchestras of Lubbock’s purpose and mission are three-fold:

1) To provide an exceptional music education experience to the members of the orchestras,

2) To present artistic performances that enrich the lives of developing musicians, our community, and our region, and

3) To work cooperatively with public and private schools and independent music teachers in a continuing effort to encourage musical development for youth.
