Island symphony orchestra to hold September auditions

Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra, with music director and conductor Mario Alejandro Torres, will hold its annual auditions Sunday, Sept. 15.

The performance group has current openings for bassoon, 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).

Auditions are by appointment only at Bainbridge Performing Arts (200 Madison Ave. North) and interested parties are requested to email symphony@bainbridgeperformingarts.org to arrange an appointment.

Musicians are requested to arrive 15 minutes ahead of their arranged appointment and look for signs to the warm-up and audition rooms. Those auditioning should prepare two contrasting works 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 on site.

Those interested in auditioning for principal positions will be asked to prepare excerpts.

Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra rehearses on Wednesday evenings, from 7 to 9:30 p.m., at BPA.
