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!

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

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.
