Seattle Rock Orchestra offers two levels of participation: paid performance opportunities in Seattle Rock Orchestra, our professional ensemble, as well as Seattle Rock Orchestra Social Club, our volunteer community orchestra. An informal audition is required for placement in either ensemble. A 'high school' ability level or above is recommended for Social Club performers. Participation in both groups is limited to adults age 21 and over. Young musicians and beginning adult players fret not, we are currently developing programs to serve you too! Stay tuned for details. For our current offerings for youth, please visit our Summer Intensive page.
Auditions are a highly informal affair, and comprise of a five to ten minute performance of prepared excerpts.
Vocalists interested in featured guest artist opportunities must include links to live performance videos, and studio recordings if available. Typically, featured vocalist opportunities are awarded to strong sheet music readers.
Audition requests are processed only once or twice a year, and may not receive a response for several weeks or months. Thank you in advance for your patience!
