Audition for Expanded Core Section Violin

Auditions will be held on June 10, 2017
The Hampton Opera Center
211 SE Caruthers, Portland, OR 97214

Core musicians in Portland Opera’s orchestra are considered first for positions as orchestration dictates. All Core musicians will be offered contracts before such contracts are offered to Expanded Core musicians.

Expanded Core musicians augment the core orchestra whenever additional players are needed. Work is shared equally between Expanded Core members of the section.

Interested candidates should send a one-page professional resume and a $35 check (payable to Portland Opera and refundable at the time of audition) to:

Erika Richter
The Hampton Opera Center
211 SE Caruthers Street
Portland, OR 97214

All resumes and checks must be received by May 19, 2017 in order to be guaranteed an audition spot.

Auditions are tentatively scheduled to begin at 5pm. Finals will begin immediately following the preliminary rounds. Times are subject to change; the need for multiple preliminary rounds is contingent on the number of candidates auditioning.
