Join the Symphony!

Whitehouse Wind Symphony membership is open to qualified, outstanding musicians willing to commit their time and effort to our organization. At this time, we are in particular need of French horn, trombone, tuba, trumpet and oboe players.

If you would like more information about joining the Symphony, you can:

  • Contact us via e-mail at WhitehouseWindSymphony@gmail.com
     
  • Come directly to one of our regular Tuesday evening rehearsals (please see our our rehearsal calendar). Rehearsals begin at 8:00 p.m. and are held in the parish hall of Saint John's Episcopal Church in Somerville, NJ. We suggest arriving early (7:30 p.m.) and ask for Jim or any member of the Board of Directors.

Prior to joining the Symphony, we may ask you to prepare for a brief qualifying audition, to be conducted by the applicable section leader. The audition may consist of a short solo of your choice, plus a demonstration of your sight-reading skills, and your ability to play two-octave scales in major keys (up to 3 sharps or flats).

Are you a high school student? High school students of high playing ability are also welcome to join the band! Consider the benefits!
