Welcome to the Audition information page for the Civic Orchestra of Minneapolis.
We thank you for your interest in the orchestra. Our mission is to foster an enriching experience for musicians and audiences of the
Twin Cities by presenting music at the highest level of any non-professional ensemble. Performances for our regular season take
place from October to May, and we have a summer concert in July. Rehearsals usually take place on Tuesday nights at 7:00 pm,
at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, 4801 France Ave., Minneapolis, MN 55410.
The Civic Orchestra of Minneapolis has openings for:
Principal Trombone (beginning fall of 2021). Please prepare the four excerpts below, as well as a 5-minute piece of your choice. The audition will also include sight reading.
Please prepare a 3 octave D Major scale and a 5-minute piece of your choice. The audition will also include sight reading.
The trombone and string auditions will take place the evening of Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd at 4801 France Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN. Section string auditions can also be arranged anytime throughout the season. Although not required, we typically will first invite you to join us for a rehearsal so you can try us out as you consider becoming a member. Following this rehearsal, you will be asked to audition.
