The Pittsburgh Symphony horn section needs a little help for the orchestra's June 9 concert at the 55th annual Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival.

The program will include Leopold Mozart's “Hunt Symphony,” which calls for dogs to make themselves heard in response to horn calls.

The symphony is looking for four good dogs and their handlers to participate in the performance. The online application should include a YouTube link to a video showing that the “canine musician” can sit, stay, bark and be silent on command.

Those chosen for the audition will be notified by email. The final live audition will be May 13 at Heinz Hall, Downtown.
