Auditions

The 2020-2021 season is not an open audition season. We currently have vacancies in flute, clarinet, trumpet, french horn, trombone, violin, viola, cello, and double bass, and we are always taking video auditions for sub positions and other positions that may open unexpectedly. If you are interested in submitting a YouTube video audition, please send the video link of all audition material below and a completed Audition Registration Form to our Personnel Manager, Beth Davis.

All musicians will need to prepare:

    1. All audition excerpts listed below for your instrument.
    2. Prepare a one-minute solo selection of your choice.
    3. Make a video of you performing your instrument on the above selections.
    4. Print and complete the Member Audition Form and send it us with a link to your virtual audition video by October 20, 2020, to be considered for our 2020-2021 season.

     

  1. In addition to the prepared music, all players will be asked to complete a sight-reading portion to their audition. Please make sure to review our NPS Mission Statement and General Membership & Dues pages.
