PORTLAND SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA has rescheduled the auditions for:


Resume deadline: April 10, 2017
Audition date: April 24, 2017

Highly qualified applicants are encouraged to send a one-page rèsumé and refundable $40 deposit check, due on or before Monday, April 10, 2017, to:

Portland Symphony Orchestra
Attn. Martin Webster, Orchestra Personnel Manager
50 Monument Square, 2nd Floor

Audition repertoire is available on their website

You may email your résumé to mwebster@portlandsymphony.org but your spot at the audition will be held only when your deposit check has arrived at the PSO office.

Checks must be payable to the Portland Symphony Orchestra and will be returned at audition check-in, or destroyed if candidate notifies Martin Webster by April 19, 2017 of intent to cancel.

Employment will begin as soon as winners’ availability and the Portland Symphony Orchestra’s schedule allow.

The PSO currently seeks to fill three violin openings:
- permanent positions Violin 1 Seat 10, and Violin 2 Seat 13
- a one-year opening for Violin 1 seat 8.
The one-year position could become permanent at the conclusion of the 2017-2018 season pending the decision of a musician on leave.

The Portland Symphony Orchestra Audition Committee reserves the right to dismiss any candidate not meeting the highest professional standards at this audition.

Auditions location:
Merrill Auditorium
20 Myrtle St.
