AUDITION INFORMATION

GENERAL INFORMATION 

The Philadelphia Wind Symphony is an all-volunteer ensemble comprising of musicians who are active performers and professionals in many different fields. The ensemble performs four concerts each season and will rehearse three times in a two week period to prepare for the performance.

 

We remain flexible around our core member's personal schedules and engage substitute musicians as needed throughout the season.
