MSO Audition Procedures
MSO plays 3-5 classical subscription concerts per season, 4 family educational concerts with string quartet, and 4 chamber music concerts. Musicians may also be contacted for other freelance work for regional arts nonprofits, weddings, and various other special event opportunities.
Video audition submissions will be accepted from emailed links to Google Drive, Dropbox, and/or unlisted YouTube videos (videos to verify live recordings). Members of the Mankato Symphony are chosen by blind audition, and the personnel manager will extract audio from the video provided to forward onto the audition panel.
In addition to recordings, include a PDF stating your full name, the order of recorded materials, and your preferred contact information. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Comments and scoring from the audition panel will be made available to auditionees, if requested.
Auditions for the 2021/22 season will be held in early fall.
Forward any questions to Benji at email@example.com.
