Every year, almost 600 musicians apply to one of our auditions organized in 17 countries of the Mediterranean and some 100 young talents are selected to participate in one of the MYO’s sessions. This auditions tour offer the chance to emerging artists from all around the Mediterranean to work with each other, to access to a high-level musical training where they can benefit from the coaching of experimented artists while working.

This auditions tour aim to meet emerging artists -musicians and vocalists- to select different and talented profiles for two opportunities to have a training giving a taste of a professional immersion:
The symphonic session
of the MYO is designed to future professional classical musicians from the Mediterranean. This training session offers an intercultural experience of the orchestra life in rehearsals, concert and on tour within the stimulating frame of the Festival d’Aix.
The Intercultural Creation Sessions are each open to a dozen of young and talented musicians from the Mediterranean basin (building their careers to become professional artists) and who have an intense practice of musical improvisation, even of composition. Fabrizio Cassol, composer and jazzman, guides these sessions and proposes to experiment with techniques of collective composition, within an ensemble, with the aim of leading to the creation of a common musical production which also reveals individual singularities. This training offers a unique intercultural experience of the life of an ensemble in creation, in rehearsals and on tour.

The applicants who want to apply for auditions in France, in Italy or in Portugal must imperatively apply online, the rest of the applicants apply directly with the partner who organizes the audition.
