    To avoid a large number of applicants at Malmö Live the first round will be by video recording. All applicants are asked to send in a recording of the required repertoire ( please read the "Audition repertoire" folder).

    If advancing from the first video round, you are welcome to a live audition at Malmö Live Concert Hall, June 10 2021. No videos accepted.

    We welcome applicants from all over the world. MSO admin will help non EU citizens with the work permit needed.

    Malmö Live is a spacious facility with several entrances, this allowes us to keep distance from each other. When auditioning applicants are divided in groups of max. 10 and each group gets a specific check in time. Including the audition staff ( approx. 5 persons ) this is the max amount of people at the same time in the audition area. There will be one preparation room per player that will be cleaned in between every group. We of course ask you to stay at home if you have any kind of symptoms, keep distance to each other during the complete process and use the hand sanitizer provided.
