Careers & Auditions


"I truly enjoy interacting with the people that make up The Cleveland Orchestra. I would have never met some of my closest friends without starting my career at The Cleveland Orchestra.

Christine Honolke, Operations Associate Manager


Musician Auditions

The Cleveland Orchestra has long committed to the pursuit of musical excellence in everything it does. Performances of standard repertoire and new works are unrivalled at home, in residencies, around the globe, on tour across North America and Europe, and through recordings, radio and internet.


Chorus Auditions

The choruses of The Cleveland Orchestra offer an opportunity to perform with world renowned ensembles. One of the few professionally trained, all-volunteer choruses sponsored by a major American orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra Choruses perform at Severance Hall & Blossom Music Center.


Clevelanders embrace all the area has to offer. It's a dash of peaceful Midwest living with plenty of culture and excitement.

The city boasts one of the nation’s top art museums, a theater district, the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame, and nightlife on East 4th Street in addition to its world-renowned Orchestra.

No city is more loyal to its teams, and Cleveland boasts three major sports teams: the Browns, the Cavs, and the Indians.

And for those who love the great outdoors, Cleveland has a wealth of recreational gems. Lake Erie is the city's backyard, and offers watersports, fishing and miles of beaches. The Cleveland Metroparks is a network of 16 recreational areas with walking, biking and riding trails. And just a short distance out of the city limits, Cuyahoga Valley National Park seems worlds away where the winding Cuyahoga River gives way to deep forests, rolling hills, and open farmlands.
