Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra (BSO) is always looking for new members and is pleased to announce annual auditions will be held Sunday, August 21, 2016 at Bainbridge Performing Arts. The BSO has current openings for English horn, bassoon, French horn, trumpet, violin, viola, and double bass. Players of all other instruments are encouraged to audition for the substitute musician list.

Auditioning musicians are requested to arrive 15 minutes ahead of their appointment and look for signs to the warm-up and audition rooms. Those auditioning should prepare two contrasting works of their choice that display the depth of their musical sensitivity and range of technical ability. Musicians should come prepared to play a total of five-eight minutes of music. Sight-reading for all instruments will be requested; music will be provided on site. Those interested in auditioning for principal positions will be asked to prepare excerpts. All parties interested in securing an audition appointment are encouraged to contact BSO Manager Larry Telles at BSOManager@bainbridgeperformingarts.org.

The Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra rehearses on Wednesday evenings, 7:00 – 9:30 p.m. at Bainbridge Performing Arts, 200 Madison Ave. N., Bainbridge Island. Stay tuned for the upcoming announcement about the BSO’s enticing 2016 – 2017 four-concert Season.

Music has always been at the heart of the BPA mission, and the organization’s commitment stands undiminished to this day. It has the backing of a well-organized Board and a thriving institution. It takes a lively community of volunteer musicians and listeners to make such a commitment sustainable, and BPA thanks the BSO musicians and audience members for their part in keeping the classical music program lively and growing. Please join us for the BSO’s 2016 - 2017 Season and celebrate the orchestra’s thriving contribution to the arts on Bainbridge Island.

BPA is supported, in part, by Bainbridge Community Foundation and One Call for All.
