We are a self-supporting, volunteer orchestra. We take pride that we are a private non-profit 501(3)(c) organization.



Dues are $65 per year. Let us know if this is not possible for you, and we will work out something.

Please pay by check, payable to Cincinnati Metropolitan Orchestra, and bring it to a rehearsal.

Or you can mail it to:

Kathy Klug, Treasurer, 6201 Turtledove Ct., Cincinnati, OH  45211


We rehearse at Seton High School Performance Hall, on most Tuesday evenings from 7:30-9:30 pm.  One Thursday rehearsal is added the week before a concert. Directions are here.


This process is very informal. The first time you come, we pair you (the prospective member) with another musician in your section for a rehearsal.

Most find this to be easy for you (and the CMO) to make sure we are a good match for each other.

For additional information or to schedule an audition please call the CMO HOTLINE: (513)-921-4919, or send us an email from the Contact page.[/one_half]


Current Openings

All strings (violin, viola, cello & bass) – especially lower strings. Most other sections are full, but many times we need substitutes, so feel free to contact us as well.

Rehearsal Attendance 

Regular attendance is very important. It is challenging for all to rehearse when musicians are absent and sections are not heard.

CMO Music Folders

It is your responsibility  to make sure that your music is at rehearsal unless a duplicate folder is definitely available; substitute players are sometimes available to fill in.

After Rehearsal Fun!

Following each rehearsal many of us stop at a nearby restaurant to relax and socialize.

When you can’t make a rehearsal…

Always call your section leader, or CMO president (link to board and cmo contact people).
