Welcome to the Audition information page for the Civic Orchestra of Minneapolis

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 6:45 pm at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd,  4801 France Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55410.  

The Civic Orchestra of Minneapolis currently has openings for Section violin/viola/cello/bass

Section string auditions can 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.

Please prepare a 3 octave D Major scale and a 5-minute piece of your choice. The audition will also include sight reading.

For more information and to schedule an audition time, please fill out the form below. Please be sure to include information about what instrument you play, and any other details which are pertinent to your situation.

Thank you for your interest!
