Principal Trumpet Auditions

Immediate Opening with the Pittsburgh Philharmonic

The Pittsburgh Philharmonic currently has an opening for principal trumpet. Information about the audition process can be found on the Auditions page or by contacting the Music Director, Personnel Manager, or Secretary. The audition repertoire may be found here. Candidates may also be considered for other trumpet chairs.

We always welcome additional string players to join Southwestern Pennsylvania’s premier volunteer orchestra. String players are encouraged to audition at any time. In addition to principal trumpet we are also looking for woodwind and brass players to serve as substitutes.

Young Composer Contest

The Pittsburgh Philharmonic invites applications from residents of the greater Pittsburgh area. The Contest Winner will have their piece performed at The Pittsburgh Philharmonic’s May 19th and 20th, 2017 concerts and will receive a $250.00 prize.

See here for eligibility and composition requirements!

Bringing it All Together

Join us March 24 and 25 for our 3rd concert of the 2016-17 Season. Using pieces which feature the smaller wind and string ensembles in the Pittsburgh Philharmonic, this concert will highlight sections of our orchestra through Dvorak Serenade for Winds and Warlock Capriol Suite. We will bring together local youth talent as the winner of our Young Artist Concerto Competition, Enoch Hsiao, performs a movement of Liszt’s Piano Concerto No.2. This concert will also incorporate dancers from LaRoche College in the six dance movements of the Warlock Capriol Suite. We will finally bring our winds and stings together for Sibelius Finlania!
