Orchestra Auditions

We are not only a choir and an orchestra but also a community of friends - it is very important to maintain this friendship and you are welcome to join us as a new friend! 


Auditions: You can register here for an audition in autumn 2017. No worries, the audition is not difficult!


1.      Strings should prepare the 1st Movement from Tchaikovsky’s String serenade http://imslp.org/wiki/Serenade_for_String_Orchestra,_Op.48_(Tchaikovsky,_Pyotr)


2.      Wind instrument players should prepare a piece of their choice


3.      There will be a sight reading test for all musicians


Pianists, percussionists and harpists send us an e-mail to probespiel@unichor.at. We are looking for pianists for choir accompaniment. 

For other questions, you can contact us at info@uniorchester-wien.at.   

For certain instruments the following requirements are necessary:

  • Flautists must have a piccolo and be able to play it
  • Clarinet players must have a B- and A-clarinet
  • Trumpeters must have a B- and C-trumpet 


Orchestra courses for strings and wind instruments:

We want to give musicians of all levels the opportunity to play music in an ensemble. As our Symphonic Orchestra has reached a very advanced level we offer courses for strings and wind instruments where you can improve your musical skills. Depending on the instrumentation there will be a concert in the following summer term. If you want to join you will have to participate in a small audition where your current knowledge will be evaluated. Register here and you will receive further information in September.


Neu: Orchesterkurse!

Im Wintersemester werden ein Streicher- und ein Bläserkurs angeboten. Dieser Kurs erleichtert dir den (Wieder-)Einstieg im Orchester, indem Grundlagen wie Atemtechnik, Bogentechnik, Intonation und Zusammenspiel unterrichtet werden. Nach dem Kursjahr kann man für das Philharmonische Orchester vorspielen.

Für die Orchesterkurse gibt es Anfang Oktober ein Probespiel. Dies ist aber kein Test, sondern eine Evaluierung der Musiker. Bitte hier anmelden.


Do. 05.10.    19.15-20.45h Streicher         21-22h Bläser
