Audition Information

Auditions for the 2015-2016 Season will be held in September.  Audition excerpts will be announced in August.  If you would like to be notified when audition sign-ups for the new season are open, click here.

Auditions for the Stanford Symphony Orchestra (SSO), Stanford Philharmonia Orchestra (SPO), and Stanford Summer Orchestra are open to all members of the Stanford community (i.e., students, faculty and staff).  Although Stanford students are given priority, we also welcome musicians from the local and non-Stanford community. 

Each audition will be 10 minutes long and consists of a solo work of your choice, as well as chosen orchestral excerpts. (All of the required orchestral excerpts can be found here.)

If you have any questions regarding the summer orchestra, please email Anna Wittstruck at

If you have any questions regarding the orchestral studies, please email Linh Tran at

General inquiries can always be addressed to Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
