This is an example of barking up the right tree.
And an example of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra going to the dogs.
Does your dog have what it takes to perform with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra? The Pittsburgh Symphony is looking for four canine “musicians” and their handlers to participate in its annual free Point State Park concert on June 9.
As part of the concert, the symphony will perform Leopold Mozart’s “Jadg-Sinfonie,” a piece that calls for barking dogs to collaborate with the horn soloists.
Please visit pittsburghsymphony.org/dogauditions to fill out an online application form and submit a link to a Youtube video demonstrating that your furry friend can sit, stay, bark and be silent on command.
Deadline for submission is April 16. Notification of those chosen for the final audition will be made via email on April 30. Final live auditions will occur on May 13 at Heinz Hall.
Following the final audition, four dogs will be selected to perform with the symphony on June 9.
