Joining the DMO
The DMO rehearses on Sunday evenings from 7:00pm-9:30pm in the Margherio Conference Room at Scott Hall on the Wayne State University medical school campus.
Address: Wayne State University - School of Medicine, Scott Hall, 540 East Canfield Street, Detroit, 48201
We hold entry auditions for interested post-high school musicians in the summer prior to our first rehearsal of the new concert season, and periodically throughout the concert season before new concert cycles.
Currently, we are recruiting musicians for the following sections of the orchestra: Violin I, Violin II, Viola, Cello, Bass, Oboe, Trombone, Tuba, Percussion. Musicians interested in playing with other sections of the orchestra are also encouraged to audition and may be considered as a substitute for a section having temporary need of musicians for a particular concert cycle. We request that musicians please prepare 4-5 minutes of a musical excerpt(s) of your choice in contrasting styles (ex: a fast vs. slow excerpt, a technical vs. lyrical excerpt).
If you have any questions about the orchestra, are interested in joining, or would like to arrange a time for an audition, please feel free to email us at:
We look forward to hearing from you!
