The Orchestra Reborn



2017 - 2018 auditions

Hi! We love that you're interested in playing with us this season. At Phoenix, we're dedicated to hiring not only amazing musicians, but extraordinary people. We believe that interesting people make compelling performers. As a result, you might notice our audition process is a little bit different. We interview candidates during auditions to get to know them, and you'll notice that in addition to a resume, we have an application question this year that might actually require some thinking. Take a look below, we can't wait to meet you!

We are specifically looking to fill several violin openings and a trumpet opening. We will also be hearing auditions for all instruments for our Supplemental List, which is used extensively for full orchestra concerts throughout the year.
