Principal Flute Auditions

Immediate Opening with the Pittsburgh Philharmonic

The Pittsburgh Philharmonic currently has an opening for principal flute. 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.

Additionally, 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 flute we are also looking for a permanent trumpet as well as woodwind and brass players to serve as substitutes.
