Fall means football as well as auditions for the Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra. If you’re a musician looking for a group to perform with, then plan to audition for FBSO’s 2012-13 season on Saturday, Aug. 25 at First United Methodist Church, 3900 Lexington Blvd., in Missouri City.
The orchestra is particularly in need of additional string players – violin, viola, cello, and bass. In addition, the orchestra has immediate openings for two French horn players, a bassoon II player and tympani and auxiliary percussion players. Both permanent and alternate positions are available with all musicians serving as unpaid volunteers.
Candidates should prepare a three- to five-minute solo and be ready to demonstrate their sight-reading skills. Auditions are open to all musicians who are high school age and older.
To schedule an appointment time between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 281-276-9642.
Rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings beginning at 7:15 p.m., generally at First United Methodist Church in Missouri City. This year, FBSO will play five concerts as part of its season subscription series and at least two other free concerts around Fort Bend County.
