Vacancies and Auditions

The New Jersey Wind Symphony holds auditions throughout the season. We are looking for musicians who have a musical passion for symphonic band literature, are dedicated to our performance schedule, and can perform music on the level of the New Jersey Wind Symphony .

Joining the NJWS

Players who would like to join the New Jersey Wind Symphony should contact us via email at Please provide your name, telephone number/email address, instrument, and a brief description of your playing experience. You will be contacted to set up an audition. The audition should highlight your technical and musical proficiency and could be contrasting sections of a sonata, concerto, or a few etudes.


Auditions are typically held prior to New Jersey Wind Symphony rehearsals. Players who audition will know ahead of time if a section is in need of their particular instrument and will be told immediately after the audition if they have been accepted as a member of the band.
