Thank you for your interest in joining the DC Concert Orchestra. DCCO is holding mid-season auditions for core strings, and supplemental (activated substitutes for our May concert) brass. Auditions for the substitute and/or wait lists for other instruments, excluding flute, will be considered on a space available basis. These auditions will be held Sunday, February 3, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 at New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, 1313 New York Ave., NW.
Audition requirements, including music excerpts, are available here . We suggest that you study performance examples of each excerpt. Info on the repertoire for the 2018-19 season is available here . The 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 $70. 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 Xavier at Info@DCCOS1.org and we will contact you shortly.
