Symphony holds annual auditions at BPA

Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra is holding its annual auditions on Sunday, Sept. 9 at Bainbridge Performing Arts.

They have current openings for trumpet, violin, viola, bass and oboe/English horn. Players of all other instruments are encouraged to audition for the substitute musician list (especially horn and trombone).

Interested parties may schedule their auditions by emailing symphony@bainbridgeperformingarts.org. Visit www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org/products/join-the-bso to print an audition application and to learn more information.

Arranged auditions are by appointment only. Those auditioning should prepare two contrasting solo works for the instrument of their choice that display the depth of their musical sensitivity and range of technical ability. Come prepared to play a total of 5 to 8 minutes of music.

Sight-reading for all instruments will be requested; music will be provided.

Those interested in auditioning for principal positions will be asked to prepare excerpts in addition to their solo pieces.

Musicians are requested to arrive 15 minutes ahead of their arranged appointment and look for signs to the warm-up and audition rooms.
