How To Join
The orchestra is open to players of a reasonable standard, regardless of age or previous orchestral experience. If you are enthusiastic about music, you will find that a very warm welcome awaits you. There is no formal audition, although players will need to cope adequately with the parts they are asked to practise and perform. As a general indication, given the type of music we tend to play, this means that players should ideally be at least Grade VI standard or equivalent, although this is not a strict minimum requirement.
Enquiries are welcome from any orchestral instrumentalists, though vacancies in certain areas arise only occasionally and depending on current repertoire.
Strings players (all sections): New string players can take advantage of the first term’s playing subscription-free!
