Joining the Orchestra

Philharmonia Northwest season auditions are held annually in September, but we are always looking for players—especially string players—for our sub list. If you are interested in auditioning to be added to our sub list, please send us an email and our personnel chair will contact you with more information and details to schedule an audition.

We are based in North Seattle and perform a five-concert season from September through April. Rehearsals are at North Seattle Community College on Tuesday evenings, and most concerts are at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Laurelhurst on Sunday afternoons.

People who are interested in auditioning can email: or leave a message at: 206-675-9727.


Philharmonia is always looking for volunteers. Would you like to help us sell merchandise or refreshments, help with events, or serve on our board of directors? We’d love to hear from you at!
