Auditions for the Fall 2019 semester will take place from August 25th – September 1st. The sign-up sheet will be available here starting in July. Please check back for more details.

Admission to the UCBSO is by audition only. Auditions are open to everyone – UC Berkeley affiliates and unaffiliated community members alike. Students are expected to enroll in orchestra for credit upon acceptance to the orchestra; exceptions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Regular attendance at twice weekly rehearsals and participation in all public performances is required. The orchestra performs in Hertz Hall, presenting one noon concert and 6-9 evening concerts per semester, as well as Cal Day each year.
