The Basque National Orchestra changes the dates of several auditions

The Basque National Orchestra has changed the dates of three auditions: two for a seat in the orchestra (one flute tutti playing piccolo and two viola tutti) and one for double-bass extra musicians. Contrary to initial plans, these will now take place in August.

The harp soloist audition will still take place in early October, and the orchestra has announced a further audition in August for bass trombone extra musicians.

A few weeks ago, the Basque National Orchestra announced the opening of several selection processes for instrumentalists to complete their staff of musicians. After some calendar reshuffling, the dates have been modified and these auditions will now take place during August. The new dates are as follows:

-Audition date: August 26th/27th

-Permanent contract with a 6-month trial period

Audition for 2 viola tutti
-Audition date: August 28th/29th

The harp soloist audition date remains unchanged:

-Audition date: October 2nd/3rd
-Application date: September 18th
-Permanent contract with a 6-month trial period

 

The orchestra has announced a further audition for bass trombone extra musicians.
