Info for musicians interested in joining Polyphonia
If you are interested in joining Polyphonia, you might first want to take a look at the programme of the upcoming project and the rehearsal plan.
Depending on which instrument you play, you will be invited to a quartet evening, where you will be playing excerpts from the current programme together with the section leaders of the orchestra. This allows you to get a feel for playing in our orchestra and to get to know us! If you play the violin, we will also use this to assign you to first or second violins. This usually takes place on the first Tuesday of the semester in the evening.
During the semester, we rehearse every Wednesday from 6pm to 9pm. Not all instruments need to be present during all rehearsals. This applies to you if you play e.g. a brass instrument or percussion. Check the rehearsal plan for details (it may not be very detailed right now, but it will be updated as the project progresses).
If you are interested in joining us, you can write us an e-mail, we are excited to hear from you! For the coming autumn semester, we are specifically looking for strings for all sections, first oboe, second clarinet and french horn. Further open positions for winds will be announced here later. Starting from spring semester 2024, we are additionally looking for first flute. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
