Audition for Colorado Bach Ensemble

Colorado Bach Ensemble is a fully professional ensemble based in Denver, Colorado. Instead of weekly rehearsals, the ensemble comes together the week of a performance with music learned to rehearse with the Artistic Director. Each set of performances is contracted separately and musicians receive rehearsal and concert fees.

Live Auditions

Live auditions are held in the Denver area with the Artistic Director each year. However, a live audition may be set up on an individual basis throughout the year at the discretion of the Artistic Director.
