  1. Ariana Culbreth

    Hello my name is Ariana Culbreth. I have a few questions about auditions. When will the next auditions be held? How much does it cost to participate? Is it possible for me to audition on more than one instrument? What pieces does or has the orchestra play exactly? How many scales are required for the auditions for a flutist? When will rehearsals take place?

    • Kristen Hudson

      Hi Ariana,

      We conduct auditions based on need when we have an availability. At this time, all of our flute positions are filled. When an audition becomes available, we will announce it here and via our Facebook page along with a list of audition requirements. We do not charge musicians to participate in our auditions. Let me know if you have any further questions!
