Auditions for the AIMS Festival Orchestra are held in cities throughout the U.S. in January through March each year. Musicians unable to audition in person may submit a video audition. [Note: There are NO in person percussion audition. All percussion auditions are video auditions.] Instrumentalists from all countries are welcome to audition for AIMS. There is a non-refundable audition fee of $45. (No other money is due until after acceptance.)
AIMS selects musicians of all ages, but players who are not yet playing professionally should consider their readiness to perform both operatic and symphonic music. The orchestra roster will be posted on March 15.
Online registration for live auditions opens in the fall.
