JOIN the Civic

The St. Louis Civic Orchestra is composed of musicians in the St. Louis metro area. The main auditions for the Civic are held each fall, but we also hold auditions throughout the year, as needed. The Civic provides a good performance outlet for the serious musician and accomplished amateur alike.

Auditions for the 2017-18 Season will take place on Tuesday, August 29th.  If you are interested in becoming a member of the orchestra, please contact our administrator, Anne Branch, at

We are accepting auditions for bassoon, french horn, trumpet, principal percussion, and all string positions.   Individuals interested in auditioning for substitute positions for any instrument are also welcome.

Parts for auditions can be found here:

Those auditioning for principal positions should also prepare a solo movement from the standard repertoire.

Note: It is suggested that you right click each link and choose “Open in New Window” in order to print the parts.
