We welcome new members of all ages, including young and developing players who have reached an appropriate standard on their instrument, as well as adult restarters and experienced players. Membership is open to all musicians who consider themselves able to play the repertoire (some of which is fairly advanced) to a high standard, who are able to attend rehearsals and practise regularly, and subject to vacancies existing in the instrumental section concerned. Advice is available to prospective members who are unsure as to their suitability, and there is always the opportunity to come and try a rehearsal without obligation. In the case of instrumental sections which are fully subscribed, we hold a waiting list of potential members who wish to join.
Musicians who might be interested in joining the orchestra are invited to contact us by filling in the contact form below, or phone Jon on 07760 393514, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Jon will either respond directly, or if specialist advice is required will forward the enquiry to the music director or the relevant section principal.
Current vacancies (July 2016): Violin, Viola, Bassoon, Double Bass, Tuba.
