Playing for the Phil

As a member owned orchestra, the Seattle Phil offers musicians a rare opportunity for participation within the organization. Being a musician for the Philharmonic is more than rehearsing and playing music, it is an entry into one of the longest running orchestra communities in the Puget Sound Region.

Applying

Formal Auditions are held each fall with Music Director Adam Stern, personnel manager Amy Werner-Allen, and selected section principals. The orchestra will hold immediate ad-hoc auditions for sections with more pressing needs.

The Seattle Philharmonic is a volunteer orchestra and positions in the orchestra are un-paid.

To request an audition, or for more information, please email us at auditions@seattlephil.org. Include your name, instrument, email address, and phone number in your message.

Upcoming Concert:

“A mysterious, indefinable poetry”: Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1

October 20, 2018 at 2pm | Benaroya Hall

The Philharmonic launches the season with a concert comprised entirely of Slavic music: composers of Czech, Polish, Russian and Slovenian origin will be featured. Two staples of the concert repertoire will be spotlighted: Bedrich Smetana's symphonic poem The Moldau and Frédéric Chopin's hauntingly beautiful Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Serbian-born pianist Milica Jelača Jovanović as soloist. An intriguing and powerful work by Slovenian composer Nana Forte, Incantation, will receive its U. S. premiere. Autumn, the most popular portion of Alexander Glazunov's radiant ballet score The Seasons, will be appropriately presented at this fall concert. A little-known delight by Antonín Dvořák, his Polonaise, completes the program.

Milica Jelača Jovanović

Benaroya Hall

Benaroya Hall houses two performance halls in a complex that is thoroughly integrated into downtown Seattle. Occupying an entire city block at the very core of the city, the development celebrates the vital role of performance events while maintaining the continuity of commercial life along one avenue and providing a much-needed public space, in the form of a terraced garden, along another.

Parking Information is available here.
