All vacancies have now been filled for Marlboro Music’s 2017 season (June 25 to August 13).

Auditions for Marlboro are typically held in New York and are scheduled as positions become available, usually every-other year for string instruments, every 2-3 years for wind instruments, and annually for voice. Piano applications are accepted on a rolling basis — please see below for application requirements and information.

Because of limited space in our audition schedule, musicians are invited to audition on the basis of a preliminary recording.

Our 2018 season will take place from June 24 to August 12 on the campus of Marlboro College in Vermont, and we hope to be able to announce our audition schedule by mid-September/early October 2017. In the meantime, for further information please contact Jennifer Loux ([email protected]; 215-569-4690) and mention your instrument or voice type. We look forward to hearing from you!


Pianists are invited to audition for our committee on the basis of preliminary recordings, and auditions are generally held in January in New York City. Because piano auditions are often held a year-and-a-half in advance (i.e. January 2016 audition for 2017 summer season) pianists are encouraged to send their materials as soon as they are available.

To apply, please submit an application form and recordings (see guidelines below) to Jennifer Loux at [email protected]

Your recordings (MP3/similar files or YouTube/similar links accepted) should include at least:

  • One work by Haydn or Mozart
  • One work by Beethoven, Schubert, or Schumann
