Auditions for the 2014 season were held Saturday, June 7th from 9 AM to 12 Noon. If you are interested in auditioning for next year, return next spring to fill out an application. String players are always in demand, and any further openings will be posted below.
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 30th, and the last is on Friday, August 8th. There is a Monday rehearsal every week. There will be three additional rehearsals on Thursday, July 10th, Friday, July 26th, and Friday, August 1st. 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.
