Members of the orchestra are all based in the Peterborough & Kawarthas region and come from all walks of life, from retired lawyer to internationally-renowned bassoon builder! Membership in the Peterborough Symphony requires a short audition process usually scheduled in the spring and fall. Audition times are now being booked for the evening of Wednesday, September 13, 2017.
However, the PSO also accepts new members throughout the season. Musician candidates should be able to play at a Royal Conservatory of Music grade 7 or the equivalent, and be available to rehearse and perform throughout the season (this year September 27, 2017 through May 2018). At the audition, candidates should be ready to play two contrasting pieces that demonstrate their skill, and be prepared to play some scales and do some sight-reading.
Contact the office at (705) 742-1992 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an audition time.
