Auditioning for Membership

General auditions for our concert season are held in late August and early September.

To schedule an audition for an open position, please contact Mark Thornton, MetWinds Auditions Coordinator, by e-mail at or by phone at (978)419-1697.

After an audition, you may be selected for either regular membership in MetWinds or as a call player.

Membership Openings

Regular membership seats in MetWinds are based on standard concert band instrumentation. We currently have openings for the following instruments:

  • bass clarinet
  • assistant first horn
  • trumpet
  • string bass
  • percussion
  • piano

If you have questions regarding auditions/membership, please contact the audition coordinator at

Call Player List

MetWinds maintains a roster of call players for all instruments. These players are invited to fill in when regular members are not available. This could be for a rehearsal, a series of rehearsals, a dress rehearsal and concert, or an entire concert cycle, depending on the need. We are currently seeking call players for all sections.

Call players are an important part of MetWinds community and many call players have later joined as regular members as openings occurred. We invite you to audition to become a call member.

If you are interested in auditioning to join the call player list, please contact the audition coordinator at
