Membership in the orchestra is gained through audition or by invitation of the conductor. For the beginning of our 2016 - 17 season, we are auditioning for all trombones, including bass trombone, 4th French Horn, Tuba, Principal Viola, Principal Cello, all string sections and subs for woodwinds and percussion.

Open auditions take place before the beginning of each season at First United Methodist Church in the Main Banquet Hall. This season, they will be held on August 30th, 2016 at 7:00 pm.

Audition requirements are two excerpts; one fast to demonstrate technique and one slow for musicality and tone quality. Principal positions will be asked to provide a resume and perform one slow and one fast excerpt of your choice.
