Experience the joys of performing the great masterpieces of the orchestral repertoire with the BCCO, a passionate group of dedicated amateurs and professionals. Open by audition to adult orchestral musicians from intermediate to advanced levels, the BCCO presents four to six concerts for the community throughout the year.

For the 2019-2020 season, we have openings in all strings, and in the trombone section. We frequently need subs in all other winds, brass and percussion, so interested musicians are encouraged to contact the music director for more information at

BKCM offers tuition-free enrollment for this class to all students currently taking private lessons. For further details on this program, please speak to a registrar.

Audition Requirements:
Please prepare two excerpts: one slow with legato bowing or tonguing, and one fast, more off-the-string or staccato. Can be a Bach partita movement, an etude, a sonata or concerto excerpt.
Auditions are held at the Brooklyn Conservatory.
