Applying for SFYCA consists of three components: an application form, a recorded audio audition, and a letter of recommendation. Applications take place entirely online using the website Slideroom, a program also used by many university music programs. The application itself is quick easy to complete, but we recommend allowing plenty of time to complete your audition recording and to request your recommendation letter from your voice teacher or choir director. Visit our audition procedures page for detailed information about how to audition as well as a helpful tutorial video that will guide you through the process. Questions? Contact us any time, we’re happy to help!


Tuition for the SFYCA includes a shared room in Barnhart Hall plus three fantastic meals per day, tickets to OBF concerts, all sheet music, downloadable digital practice recordings, and an official SFYCA t-shirt and messenger bag. Individuals are responsible for their own transportation to and from Eugene. We provide transportation from the Eugene airport to OBF for out-of-state students. A limited number of scholarships are available.

The cost to attend SFYCA is $995.
