Auditions

Calling New Musicians

The Starlight Symphony Orchestra is accepting new players. The orchestra is a hybrid of professional, semi-professional, amateur, and student musicians. Advanced students 8th grade or above from any of our area schools also are invited to audition. More information on the auditions follows below.

Informal auditions are conducted throughout the concert season. We are always looking for string players, subs and new talent. Interested people should contact us: recruitment@starlightsymphony.org.

Regular Rehearsals are Thursday Evenings 7:15p - 9:15p

At The Hays Performing Arts Center, 979 Kohler's Crossing Road, Kyle, TX

All new players must audition. Auditioning is required for placement on our substitute list, as well. Auditions will be held for:

Winds
Percussion
Strings

Prepare to play two pieces for our conductor, Dr. David Oertel. The music should be something that you feel comfortable playing and demonstrates your playing level and ability. Each player is asked to play pieces that demonstrate contrasting styles, i.e., something to show technical ability (faster tempo) and something to show melodic tonality (slower tempo.) The selections should be short (3-5 min); prepare no more than ten minutes of music.
