The Diablo Valley College Philharmonic Orchestra
Dr. Owen J. Lee, Music Director
Membership in the DVC Philharmonic is by audition with the music director. All college student and community musicians are encouraged to audition. High school students may audition if he/she is already enrolled in his/her high school orchestra or if his/her high school has no orchestra.
Auditions are held for new prospective members in August and January, at the start of each semester. Please see http://www.dvc.edu for an academic calendar showing the precise dates of the semester. All instruments are welcome to audition, however, only vacant positions will be filled. Diablo Valley College has a full instrumental music program for those not accepted into the orchestra any given semester.
All musicians accepted into the orchestra must enroll in MUSPF 290 at Diablo Valley College. This is a 1 unit course with a fee of $26. Please see http://www.dvc.edu for enrollment procedures. MUSIC 190x is available for those who have enrolled in MUSPF 290 more than 4 times.
Musicians should prepare 2 very short excerpts demonstrating fast, virtuosic playing and slow, expressive playing. Sight-reading will be included in the audition. Musicians interested in an audition should contact the music director at 925-969-2701 or Owen Lee email@example.com.
