Joining the MiO

For the winter term 2021/21 we are looking for  bassoons, french horns and trumpets. Exchange students who play a wind instrument can replace our regular players for one piece and one semester.

Each year we rehearse two programmes. Rehearsal times match the summer and winter semesters of the universities; at the end of each semester we perform our concerts. During the semester, we rehearse every Thursday, 7.15pm. Additionally, we go on a rehearsal retreat outside of Munich for one weekend.

Exchange students are welcome even if they are only able to join us for one or two semesters. We are also glad to assist with instrument loans.

How do you join the MiO?

  • Our first rehearsal on the first Thursday (October 21, 2021) of the semester is open to anyone who wants to get to know our orchestra. String players are welcome to play along! There will be a short introduction to the MiO at 7pm; the rehearsal starts at 7.15pm in Feierwerk - Funkstation (Margarete-Schütte-Lihotzky-Straße 36).
  • Auditions will be held on the following Tuesday (October 26, 2021) in Kulturhaus Milbertshofen (Curt Mezger Platz 1). Please prepare a piece of your choice; you will also be asked to sight-read a short passage. Woodwind and brass players are asked to contact to schedule a timeslot for the audition.

Please note: a 3G certificate (fully vaccinated / recovered / tested) is required for participation in the audition and rehearsals.

We are looking forward to meeting you!
