Auditions + Openings



Mercury holds annual auditions for additional and substitute string players every spring and schedules auditions for period instrument winds, theorbo and harpsichord on an ongoing basis.

Note: Wind and percussion players are required to audition on Baroque or Classical period instruments.  String players may audition on modern instruments but should be prepared with gut strings and period-appropriate bow and, if contracted, must play with period-appropriate setup.

Please direct any questions to Judy Frow, Artistic Administrator, at
