Special Auditions: Under special circumstances (such as specific orchestra needs) some musicians may audition during the season. Special auditions will be at the discretion of the Conductor in concurrence with the Music Director and the Executive Director.

Under special circumstances a conductor may appoint a non-member musician to perform with the orchestra for a specific concert.
