Thank you for your interest in joining the DC Concert Orchestra. Except for double bass and strong violists, DCCO's autumn audition for the 2019-20 season are now closed. Mid-season auditions will be held December 15. You may submit forms now for consideration mid-season (no flute candidates please). We will contact you in November. Further information on DCCO's audition process is available below.
Audition requirements, including music excerpts, are available here. We suggest that you study performance examples of each excerpt. Repertoire for the 2019-20 is available here. The draft rehearsal and concert schedule is available here.
The DCCO Member Handbook is available here. We recommend that you read it to understand the culture and operations of DCCO, and to ensure that we are a good fit for each other.
If accepted, annual dues for orchestra membership are $80. DCCO does not pro-rate membership dues based on the number of concerts you may participate in within the season. Accommodation can be made for those for whom the dues may pose a financial hardship. (More information is available in the Member Handbook under Auditions)
If you wish to audition, please download and complete the form available here. Complete the form electronically please (do not print and fill in with ink and scan back). Mail the completed form to Auditions@DCCOS1.org and we will contact you in early August.
Again, thank you for your interest and good luck!
