The Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra will hold auditions for Concertmaster and Principal 2nd Violin beginning at 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, May 12th at the Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts, 826 N. 8th St., Sheboygan.

The Concertmaster’s responsibilities will include marking/coordinating the bowing and articulations of the string section in accord with the Music Director/ Conductor’s requests. Our former concertmaster served as soloist with the SSO on 10 occasions during her tenure. There may be opportunities for the next concertmaster to solo. The concertmaster position may lead to the possibility of conducting full string sectionals with the SSO. The ideal concertmaster candidate will have conducting skills. She/he should be aware that a conducting position is available with the Sheboygan Area Youth Symphony Concert Orchestra. Preference may be given to a candidate with a high level of string performance and experience.

Those interested in auditioning for Concertmaster should prepare a solo equivalent to or beyond the standards of the Wisconsin School Music Association Class A repertoire list. Please refer to the Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra website for the required excerpts and to fill out an audition form. You may contact the Symphony office if you need a copy of an excerpt.
