On behalf of the Performance Operations Office, welcome to Manhattan School of Music!
Auditions are held to determine placement in the Manhattan Chamber Sinfonia, the Manhattan Symphony Orchestra, and the Manhattan Philharmonia Orchestra. Every student playing an orchestral instrument is required to take these auditions, without exception. Auditions are held throughout the building and adjudicated by members of the faculty, many of whom are members of the New York Philharmonic or the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.
Auditions for the Fall 2013 semester will take place from September 16 through September 20, 2013. Your individual audition time, date and location will be available after academic classes begin. Nolan Robertson, the Orchestra Manager, will be in touch with you directly with this information. If you have questions regarding your audition please contact the Orchestra Manager, Nolan Robertson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be a mandatory orchestra meeting following the auditions, which all students must attend to receive information about their orchestra placement. The date and time of this meeting will be announced during the week of placement auditions.
Please note that there is a second round of auditions for all principal chairs. This audition immediately follows the first round of auditions and is by invitation only.
