The Houston Civic Symphony holds auditions for orchestra musicians in August each year. All members of Houston Civic Symphony are volunteers. As a general rule, auditioning string players who meet the standards of the orchestra will be invited to join. Invitations to join other sections will depend on vacancies. All qualified players in all sections are invited to audition, as substitute players are often invited to perform with the orchestra on a concert by concert basis. In addition, the Symphony is eager to involve qualifying musicians in its Chamber Music program.
The orchestra typically performs five concerts each season. Rehearsals are held on the campus of Houston Baptist University campus on Monday evenings from 7:30 - 10:00 p.m.
