Chair Auditions – 2018-19


On September 30, October 7, 2018 we’ll hold chair placement auditions during the regular rehearsal time. (Note: see below for the date of your section’s auditions) Each member will record the required audition material in a separate room for an audition monitor. Actual seating will be made after chair placement auditions.

If you know you are going to be absent on your chair audition day, you must complete your audition on the other audition day. Auditions heard after the final audition date will result in a lower chair placement.

  • Sunday, September 30 – WINDS, BRASS, CELLI and BASSES
  • Sunday, October 7 –VIOLAS, VIOLINS, including concertmaster auditions

There will be no chair placement auditions for piano, harp, tuba or percussion.

Chair position results will be announced on Sunday, October 21.
