Orchestra seeks concertmaster

After 34 years, the Concertmaster position with the Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra (SSO) is opening. Auditions will be held beginning 3 p.m. Wednesday, March 18 at the Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts, 826 N. Eighth St., Sheboygan.

This highly-sought after position will include marking/coordinating the bowing and articulations of the string section in accord with the Music Director/Conductor’s requests.

The concertmaster position may lead to the possibility of conducting full string sectionals with the SSO. The ideal concertmaster candidate will have conducting skills. She/he should be aware that a conducting position is available with the Sheboygan Area Youth Symphony Concert Orchestra. Preference may be given to a candidate with a high level of string performance and experience.

The former SSO concertmaster served as soloist within the orchestra on 10 occasions during her tenure. There may be opportunities for the next concertmaster to solo as well.

The SSO offers an elite level of performance ability and is searching the state to find someone with experience to help continue to reach the level of excellence they are known to perform.

Those interested in auditioning should prepare a solo equivalent to or beyond the standards of the Wisconsin School Music Association Class A repertoire list.
