Announcing open auditions for the Diablo Symphony Orchestra, (www.diablosymphony.org), a high quality community orchestra that performs primarily in Contra Costa County.
Currently, auditions are open for violin, viola, cello and bass positions. There are also opportunities for mentored positions in the string, wind, brass, and percussion sections, in which the new players will play “side-by-side” with their orchestral mentors. In some cases, the mentees will have the opportunity to be coached gratis by their DSO mentors, as well as to receive a modest stipend to defray expenses related to orchestra menteeship (parking, mileage, a limited number of lessons on their instrument).
We value having a membership that includes a wide range of perspectives and identities including ethnicity, race, gender, socio-economic background, language, political and religious beliefs, sexual orientation, and abilities. Therefore, we especially welcome applications from people who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Color, transgender, gender-nonconforming, LGBTQ+, and people living with disabilities.
Contact Robert Hamaker, Personnel Manager, at [email protected], 925-216-6293, with questions and/or to set up an audition date and time.
