General auditions for our concert season are held in late August and early September.
To schedule an audition for an open position, please contact Elana Lorance, MWS Auditions Coordinator, by e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at (617) 983-1370.
After an audition, you may be selected for either regular membership in the MWS or as a call player.
Regular membership seats in the MWS are based on standard concert band instrumentation. Auditions for the 2015-2016 season have concluded, however auditions will be scheduled for musicians who are interested in our remaining open positions:
We are currently seeking call players (see below) for all sections. If you have questions regarding auditions/membership, please contact the audition coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Metropolitan Wind Symphony 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, except flute/piccolo.
Call players are an important part of the MWS community and many call players have later joined as regular members as openings occurred. We invite you to audition to become a call member.
