Philharmonic Orchestra

We rehearse once a week. In addition there are one or two weekend retreats each semester. In order to ensure good musical quality, it is necessary that you attend at least 80% of the rehearsals. All appointments will be given at the beginning of the term.

Join the Philharmonic Orchestra

You do not have to study at the Vienna University to take part in the orchestra.

In March 2019 there will be auditions for all instruments. We are especially looking for Trombones, an oboe with English horn and double basses. Flutes and Clarinets can be accepted only in autumn 2019.


Strings should prepare the 1st Movement from Tchaikovsky’s String serenade.

Woodwinds and horns should prepare the 1st movement from Gounod’s Petite Symphonie“

Trumpets, trombones and tubas can prepare a work of their choice.

There will be a sight reading test for all musicians.

For certain instruments the following requirements are obligatory:
Flutists must have a piccolo and be able to play it.
Clarinet players must have a B- and A-clarinet.
Trumpeters must have a B- and C-trumpet.

Pianists, percussionists and harpists send an e-mail at probespiel@​philharmonie.​wien. We are also looking for pianists for choir accompaniment.
For any other questions send us an e-mail at info@​philharmonie.​wien

Many first year students, international students and all who are generally new to Vienna join our community and have yet to meet people outside of their own university courses.
