The Bloomington Symphony has a rolling, two-part audition process. The first round is a video, prepared and submitted at your convenience. The second round is a performance of the same materials in front of our Music Director and committee in a live, in-person audition.
We are finding a higher placement rate with the video process and are adding more players to the orchestra. Before the first round videos, we found that many candidates had not played auditions recently, and sometimes nerves were getting the best of a person. Preparing a video allows a candidate to submit his or her best performance for review and provides chance to have that playing confirmed in person.
Current Openings (2017-18 season):
Violin – Assistant Principal First (4th chair); Associate Principal Second (2nd chair); Section First & Second
Viola – Associate Principal and Section
Cello – Section
Bass – Principal
Trumpet – Principal
Percussion – Section
Winds, Brass & Timpani: Substitute positions (only)
Audition materials for all instruments can be found here.
