Thank you for your interest in the New World Symphony, America's Orchestral Academy (NWS).

The New World Symphony is pleased to announce auditions for our 2021-22 season substitute list.  These auditions are for the exclusive benefit of specific festival participants.  Your festival administration will forward information to you about the requirements and you will be asked to indicate which festival you are attending as part of the application process.  All others are invited to apply for NWS in the fall.

If selected for NWS' substitute musician list, you may be called to serve as additional personnel to augment NWS for larger works or to replace musicians taking time off. 

If you are already on our substitute list for the 2021-22 Season, there is no need to audition again.
