You play an orchestral instrument and would like to play challenging, extraordinary and diverse concert programmes at the end of each semester at the 'Konzerthaus Freiburg' under professional guidance?

Then you are exactly right with us!

For the winter semester 2019/20 with our fantastic concert programme…

Gustav Mahler Symphony No. 5

…we are offering positions for new members playing any string instrument (including principal), the flute (with piccolo), oboe (with or without cor anglais), bassoon (with contrabassoon), french horn, trumpet, trombone, harp or percussion. If you play another orchestral instrument, please don't hesitate to contact us nonetheless, since a new opportunity regularly comes up. All FSO members get to vote on our concert programmes, by the way; so you as a new member will be able to have a say in what we play for the summer semester 2020.


If you want to join our orchestra, simply send us a short message, preferrably via the following contact form; we'll then set up a date for an audition, at which we can get to know you a little bit: One or two pieces of about five to ten minutes, that should include a few lyrical and a few technical passages and that you feel well represented by, will totally suffice – so no need to be shy…

We look forward to meeting you!
