HYS makes arrangements to work around SAT testing and students who are off-island on their audition date.
You will be off island on your audition date
If you do not live on Oahu, you may record yourself playing the audition music and submit the recording (CD ONLY and playable on any standard player or computer disk drive for CD). The recording must be received by the HYS office by May 17 to be considered, no exceptions. We advise you to call the office, 808-941-9706, to ensure that your recording was received. HYS will NOT follow-up if your audition recording is not received by the due date and will consider your audition a forfeit. Taped auditions are played during the live auditions. Evidence of editing will lead to automatic disqualification.
You will be traveling during your audition date
If you live on Oahu, but will be traveling on your audition date we will contact you to schedule a live taping of your audition the week of May 13. Proof of travel (copy of receipt or ticket showing student’s name and date of travel) should be sent with your application to be eligible. An additional $10 fee is required for this option. Taped auditions are played during the live auditions.
You are taking the SAT test on your scheduled audition date
If your audition time is scheduled for the same day you are taking the SAT, please include this information on your application. You will be scheduled later in the afternoon.
Call or email the HYS office if you have further questions.
