Auditions for the 2017 season were be held Saturday, June 10th from 9 AM to 12 Noon. Check back next year for information on auditions and what positions are available. Thank you for your interest!
They occur right at Glenbard South High School in the Music Department. There are always openings for all string sections, but the wind, brass, and percussion sections have only limited openings. The auditions are short and we provide the music after we receive your application. For questions, please contact us via e-mail or phone.
Unless otherwise stated, all rehearsals take place Monday nights at 7:30 PM in the Glenbard South auditorium. The first rehearsal is on Monday, June 26th, and the last is on Friday, August 4th. There is a Monday rehearsal every week except July 3rd. There will be five additional rehearsals on Thursday, June 29th; Friday, July 7th; Friday, August 21st; Friday, July 28th; and Friday, August 4th. All of those are at 7:30 PM.
You should come prepared to each rehearsal, having practiced the home copies of the music. There is generally very little time for spot work, and there are no sectionals. All bowings for the strings are in the parts. If there is a question on bowings, talk to your section leader. For any questions on interpretation, refer those to the director.
Each stand will have an official green folder at rehearsals. Those remain at Glenbard South and are not to be taken home. If you wish to mark your home copy, please do so before or after rehearsal, or during the rehearsal break.
