Below you will find current audition announcements. When I am able to obtain the repertoire it is listed. If not, you’ll have to contact that orchestra to receive it. (If you do, I’d love to hear back from you and add that to my list!) To see past audition repertoire go to Professional Orchestra Audition Repertoire Lists (Past).

I provide this information as a service, but I do not guarantee its accurcy! Be sure and check the links or contact the orchestras to verify the posted information. Thank you.
