Can they file an H-1B petition for me. They are asking me to find an immigration attorney
An H-1b petition is unlikely to work given that the H-1b cap has been met for the year. It may be an option in the future, depending upon the criteria of the symphany. You will need to present both your complete background, and the requirements of the orchestra for review before an attorney can determine what your best options may be.
You can not get an H-1b until Oct 2013. It may be worth a shot to go for the O-1. I suggest showing a lawyer you resume/ CV to see if you can meet the O-1 criteria. For more info on the O-1
