How to Join the St. Louis Civic Orchestra
The St. Louis Civic Orchestra is composed of musicians in the St. Louis metro area. The main auditions for the SLCO are held each fall, but we also hold auditions throughout the year as needed. If you are new to the area or have lived here for a while and now want to play with a community orchestra regularly or as a substitute, please contact email@example.com for information about joining our group. Please also see the Join the Civic tab for more information, including audition excerpts.
Members of the Civic pay $60 in annual dues. These are due by the first rehearsal. Orchestra members who have paid their dues will receive 2 comp tickets per concert.
Members are also encouraged to donate to SLCO and help support the organization’s mission of providing performance opportunities for area musicians (you!) and live orchestral music for St. Louis area audiences.
Please note: there are new membership levels for the 2017-18 season.
