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 Jeanne Lambson for information about joining our group.  Please also see the Join the Civic tab for more information, including audition excerpts.

Auditions for the 2021-22 season will take place on Tuesday, August 24th, 6:30 PM at St Paul’s Evangelical Church, located at 9801 Olive Blvd, Saint Louis, MO 63141. Social distancing will be observed and masks will be worn among a small music committee observing the auditions. 

We are especially looking for musicians in the following areas:

  • Strings (all sections – Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass)
