Required information form for prospective Life Sciences Orchestra Members

: Fill out the form and then press the "Send..." button below. You must enter an email address for this form to function. If you do not have an email address, you will have to obtain an email account (perhaps a free one from hotmail or yahoo) in order to use this form. If auditions have already taken place, you are still encouraged to fill out this form. That way, we can contact you when openings arise.

Before auditioning, please check the "Important Dates for LSO Members" and the Frequency Asked Questions to make sure that you can attend LSO events and rehearsals. The LSO realizes that life sciences community members are extremely busy; however, accepting a position in the LSO means accepting a responsibility to your fellow musicians to learn your music, attend rehearsals, and attend concerts. If you know you will have regular conflicts with LSO rehearsals and concerts, do not audition! Regular unexcused absences will result in dismissal from the orchestra.
