Joining the MiO

For the summer term 2022 we are looking for bassoons, oboes, clarinets, bass clarinet, french horns, trumpets, percussionists and strings. 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 usually 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 Thursday (June 23, 2022) 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 parish hall of Herz Jesu church (Winthirstraße 25).
  • Auditions will be held on the following Tuesday (June 28, 2022). 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!
