Principal Positions

Principal positions are available to strings, winds, brass, and percussion players in Symphony Orchestra, and to strings players in Preparatory Orchestra. 

Candidates will show exceptional preparation and commitment in their ensembles. Each candidate will be required to play an additional audition (on the 2nd week of rehearsal). The principal audition will include two unprepared excerpts from the entire semester’s repertoire, and two brief interview questions.

Principal players receive a wonderful opportunity to hone their leadership and communication skills by having greater interaction with each other and the conductor. 

Virtuosi members are required to play a principal audition for consideration for the ensemble.
