Prince George’s Philharmonic announces auditions for the 2015-2016 season

Auditions will be held for all string sections and for substitutes in the woodwind, brass, and percussion sections.

Auditions are scheduled to take place in early September, most likely on Wednesday, September 2, 2015, from 7:00pm until 10:00pm at Northwestern High School, 7000 Adelphi Road, Hyattsville, MD. Please check back for the exact audition date and time.

String players may sit- in and read with the Philharmonic at the first rehearsal on Wednesday, September 9, 2015 before scheduling an audition. Please let us know if you plan to attend this rehearsal.

All open positions are non-compensated, volunteer positions.

For all auditions, please prepare two solo works of contrasting styles (or two contrasting movements of the same solo work). Woodwind and brass players should also prepare several standard orchestral excerpts of their choice. In addition, candidates on all instruments will be asked to play an excerpt from the standard repertoire which they will receive upon arrival at the audition venue.

You may set-up an audition via the audition form.
