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 floodtide of inspired invention”: Beethoven’s Seventh

April 6, 2019 at 2pm | Benaroya Hall

"A masterpiece of technical skill, taste, imagination, craftsmanship and inspiration." Thus did the hyper-critical Hector Berlioz sum up his thoughts on Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, one of the most beloved of Beethoven's Nine ever since its wildly successful premiere (at which the audience insisted on an immediate repeat of the slow movement). Franz Liszt's impassioned and innovative Piano Concerto No. 1 will be performed by the winner of the Philharmonic's 2018 Don Bushell competition, Hexin Qiao. A symphonic work by Finnish composer Helvi Leiviskä rounds out this special concert.

Hexin Qiao

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.
