Open Auditions are held every August

Open positions are posted here throughout the year and through our social media.

If you are interested in playing in an exciting community orchestra based in Alexandria, Minnesota, consider auditioning for us!

Membership with CLSO is open to musicians age sixteen and older. We rehearse every Tuesday evening from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Alexandria Area High School Music Department. Rehearsals begin in mid-August and end in May. Dedication to the rehearsal schedule is a must.

Auditions are given in a very friendly, supportive musical atmosphere with the artistic director, concertmaster and a member of the musician’s board. For the audition, you will be given a couple of contrasting orchestra excerpts to prepare beforehand and a short etude to sight-read.

These are the instruments that we are currently looking to fill:

  • Bassoon
  • Violin
  • Viola
  • Cello
  • Bass
