Join the Orchestra

What do I need to join the orchestra?

  • You must play an orchestral instrument (Strings, woodwind, brass, percussion);
  • Have several years of experience playing;
  • Orchestral experience is preferred but not required.

Symphony on the Bay currently is looking for violin, viola, cello and double bass players. Rehearsals start on September 14 and the first concert is on October 30. Contact the Personnel Manager for details.


So I meet the above criteria. What’s next?

  • Contact Graham Young, Personnel Manager, by email at personnel -at- symphonyonthebay -dot- ca to set up an audition.

What is involved in the audition?

  • The audition is very informal;
  • It requires performing a piece of your choice;
  • The conductor will be looking for pitch, rhythm, musicality and ability to follow instruction.
