About Portland Opera Orchestra Auditions:
Core musicians in Portland Opera's orchestra are considered first for positions as orchestration dictates. All Core musicians will be offered contracts before such contracts are offered to Expanded Core musicians.
Expanded Core musicians augment the core orchestra whenever additional players are needed. Work is shared equally between Expanded Core members of the section.
Musicians interested in attending any of the above auditions should send a one-page professional resume and $35 check (payable to Portland Opera and refundable at the time of audition) to:
The Hampton Opera Center
211 SE Caruthers Street
Portland, OR 97214
Finals will begin immediately following the preliminary rounds. Times are subject to change; the need for multiple preliminary rounds is contingent on the number of candidates auditioning.
For more information, please email Jessica Crawford. No calls, please.
