Thoughts on life and music.

Upcoming Auditions - October 2014

Notes on audition listings:As a general rule, I only list American auditions. I will list international auditions that either take place in the US or accept recordings from US citizens. The AFM does not have contracts with international orchestras. Working conditions are not always regulated in these groups, so proceed with caution and seek advice of past players if you are offered an international position. 
I list both union and non-union domestic auditions, for orchestras and other performing jobs.
