Audition

To become a member of the orchestra, musicians must pass an audition. Auditions are
usually held each spring, but can be arranged at other times of the year if there are
openings for particular instruments. Audition results will be issued by email within 2
weeks of the audition date. Registration is held in September at which time tuition
payment is due.

Audition Fees

Audition fees are $30 per musician and are non-refundable.
