Audi­tions for the UW Symphony Orchestra and UW Campus Philharmonia Orchestra will take place on Mon­day and Tues­day evenings, Sep­tem­ber 22nd and 23rd, 2014, in Meany room 268 between 5:30 to 8:30 pm.

[Bass play­ers: your seat­ing audi­tions will be held sep­a­rately by Pro­fes­sor Lieber­mann. Please con­tact him directly at for information.]

  • Return­ing stu­dents are expected to take the seat­ing audi­tion along with new students.
  • These audi­tions are being held so that we can best devise seat­ing plans for each con­cert. Seat­ing will rotate through­out the year.
  • Please come pre­pared to play (for approx­i­mately 5 min­utes) selec­tions from two works of con­trast­ing styles/periods. Music majors will also be asked to sight-read.
  • The first orches­tra rehearsal will be Mon­day, Sep­tem­ber 30th in Meany 268. If you have any ques­tions please email Dr. Rah­bee at:

Audi­tion sign-up sheets will be posted on Dr. Rahbee’s office door, Music Build­ing room 209,   in late August, and will remain posted until 2pm on Mon­day Sep­tem­ber 22nd.
