Come audition and join the Hampton Roads Philharmonic! We have the following availability:

2 Violins

1 Viola

1 Bassoon

1 Tuba

All other instruments & sections are strongly encouraged to audition for future per-concert and substitute consideration. We often utilize additional players throughout the season as our instrumentation needs change for specific programs. Additionally, if an emergency arises, we draw from our substitute list to bring in players mid-season. Even if you’re not sure if you will be available, filling out our online audition form is the quickest and easiest way to become a part of the orchestra.

Hampton Roads Philharmonic Practice

Our volunteer-based orchestra rehearses weekly, Tuesday nights, 7-9 pm in Hampton. We will be performing four exciting programs throughout our upcoming season throughout Hampton Roads. Interested musicians are asked to perform contrasting solo pieces, submit a brief professional bio, and be available for all HRP rehearsals, performances, and events.
