Joining WCSO

The West Coast Symphony auditions potential new members throughout the year. Rehearsals are generally on Thursday evenings, and players are expected to attend all rehearsals for a concert, although one excused absence is usually permitted at the discretion of the section leader. Players are encouraged to play in as many concerts in the season as their schedule allows.

We are looking for musicians that practise regularly, have played with orchestras at a university-equivalent level or higher, and enjoy playing great music.  

To set up an audition time, please send a short summary of your musical experience and your contact information (phone and email) to the email address given below. The audition generally consists of either playing a prepared piece for the section lead; or optionally for violinists, playing alongside a selected player in a rehearsal.

We hope to hear from you soon!
