Audition schedule sign-ups will be posted on the Orchestra Room door - audition dates are below:
Full rehearsals will begin the week of September 5.
String players who plan to audition for Symphony Orchestra should prepare one minute of a solo piece in addition to orchestral excerpts.
String players who plan to audition for Philharmonia should simply prepare a solo of your choice, 3-4 minutes in length. No excerpts required for Philharmonia.
Wind, brass, and percussion players who plan to audition for Symphony Orchestra and/or Chamber Orchestra should prepare the audition excerpts. No other music is required for the audition--no solo, no sight reading. Just excerpts.
Every four years, the Luther College Symphony Orchestra travels to Vienna, Austria for twenty-five days of music-making, study, sightseeing, museums, great music, great architecture, history, learning, and fun. This January 2023 trip will be your only opportunity to see Vienna with the Luther College Symphony during your college career. We will not return to Vienna until January 2027.
