For the winter term 2017/18 we are looking for double basses, oboes, trombones, a clarinet, a piccolo, violins, violas and cello. 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 in parish hall of St. Ursula Kaiserplatz 13a, close to Münchner Freiheit. 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 19, 2017) 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. The open rehearsal will be held at the TUM hospital (Klinikum Rechts der Isar). We will meet in front of the building (see this link to google maps).
- Auditions will be held on the following Tuesday (October 24, 2017) from 6:00-10pm at Kulturhaus Milbertshofen. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a timeslot for the audition.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
