Membership in the Lawrence Community Orchestra is comprised of professional, amateur, and student musicians. Musicians are expected to attend all rehearsals and performance(s) for each concert cycle. An honorarium of $75 for section musicians and $150 for principal players is awarded at the end of each concert.

Auditions for the Lawrence Community Orchestra take place via online video submission twice a year (June 1 and December 1). Musicians are encouraged to submit an audition video no later than one of two audition dates (preferred date – June 1) to be considered for future performance rotations.

    1. Unlisted YouTube Video Link (preferred)
    2. Google Drive Link (View or Edit Mode)
  4. Fill out the following Google Form no later than the June 1 or December 1 entry deadline. You will be notified no later than 2 weeks following those deadlines of placement into the LCO performance rotation.
