AUDITIONS

The Meridian Symphony invites area musicians to audition for open positions for the 2023/2024 season.

There are now two options to becoming a member of the orchestra:

 

Option 1:  A live behind-screen audition consisting of a portion of a standard solo work and the excerpts listed on the MSO website for your instrument.  Live auditions are by appointment only and are typically scheduled on rehearsal evenings prior to rehearsal once season rehearsals have begun.   Click to Schedule an Audition

 

Option 2:  A video audition posted to YouTube of the same material from option number 1., Send the YouTube link to the MSO Personnel Manager. The audition video will then be forwarded to the appropriate audition panel.

Young Musicians

If you have been practicing the youth orchestra audition material for the 2023/2024 season, please consider scheduling an audition for the Meridian Symphony Orchestra instead (you do not need to learn new audition material).  This season of the Meridian Symphony Youth Orchestra has been paused, and young musicians are welcome to audition for the MSO instead.

Rehearsal & Concert Information 

Rehearsals are held on Monday nights throughout our performance season from 7:00 to 9:15pm.

Our rehearsal and concert venue as well as rehearsal schedule is typically set by the beginning of September and is communicated through our musician member announcements.  At present, we have four concert dates each season with one outdoor performance in June.
