Community Orchestras - NYC

February 20, 2018, 12:25 PM · Does anyone here have experience with either the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra or the Park Ave Symphony?

Within this next year I'm hoping to join a community orchestra, and I'm currently working on the 2nd movement of the Bruch Concerto (amongst other rep).

Hoping someone can let me know what level of playing these two organizations require, and their preferred audition material.
