Auditions + Openings



We hold annual auditions for additional players and substitutes for all string sections each spring and schedule auditions for period instrument winds, theorbo and harpsichord on a continuing 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 baroque bow and, if contracted, must play with period-appropriate setup.

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