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 director Dick Griffith, and selected section principals.  The orchestra will hold immediate ad-hoc auditions for sections with more pressing needs.

To request an audition, or for more information, please visit our contact form.

Upcoming Concert:

Tragic Heroes: Hamlet and Petrouchka

March 28, 2015 at 2pm | Benaroya Hall

In a concert focusing on the world of theater, Russian-born masters Dmitri Shostakovich and Igor Stravinsky remind us why their music is forever gripping and appealing. Shostakovich's score for the Russian film version of Hamlet is music of almost unbearable drama, and Stravinsky's ever-popular ballet Petrouchka is presented here in its original opulent scoring. SPO Don Bushell Competition winner Felicity James is featured in Saint-Saëns' lyrical Violin Concerto No. 3.

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.
