Each term begins with an open rehearsal where everyone who is interested in joining (including former members) comes to read through some of the repertoire planned for the term. For new players this is your chance to check out the level of the orchestra. More formal auditions take place after the open rehearsal, as well as the afternoon of the open rehearsal.  Please sign up using the link above.

Please note: There is a $50 fee for the orchestra, which is waived if you sign up for credit.

Joining the orchestra

Note: registering for an ensemble on Quest does not mean the director knows you are intending to participate in a given term. You must audition (or if you are not required to audition, then you must notify the director directly).  Please sign up on Quest before your audition.

If you do not pass the audition or are not asked back in the ensemble, you must drop the course on Quest yourself (if you registered in the first place) as this is not automatically done for you.
