The Wheeling Symphony Orchestra (WSO) is excited to announce several auditions for string positions: 

Associate Concertmaster
Section violin (3)
Assistant Principal Cello
Section cello (2)

The WSO is celebrating its 91st season and is entering an exciting new chapter with its new Music Director John Devlin. Our orchestra is committed to presenting great American music, as well as composers and artists that represent all backgrounds. We are looking for musicians that enthusiastically embrace risk-taking in their playing and are willing to experiment in the way that concerts are presented— a focus for the WSO. The WSO empowers our musicians by providing them a voice in the programming of the group; featuring their stories through our marketing and social-media presence; and offering vast amounts of chamber-music opportunities, most notably through our new WSO on the Go program that brings music to communities throughout the Ohio Valley in dynamic formats and spaces. 

Our season consists of a seven-concert subscription season (4 Masterworks and 3 Pops), multiple special-event concerts, plus two week-long tours. Pay is per-service and competitive, with travel stipend and hotel stays included. We are a union orchestra.
