THE APPLICATION PROCESS
Entry is by audition and applications will be considered at any time throughout the academic year. We currently still have available places in some sections and particularly in brass, lower woodwind and strings. If you would like to apply, we would love to hear from you at any time! You would be very welcome to come along to a "taster" rehearsal prior to applying
WHO CAN APPLY?
The upper age limit is 21 years on or before the 30 August in the year of your 21st birthday. There is no minimum age requirement.
We will accept applications from musicians from any geographical location.
Players are expected to be of approximately Grade 5 Level or above, although this is only an indication - there is no requirement to have actually taken any exams.
Unfortunately, we currently have no vacancies in our flute or clarinet sections.
WHAT DOES THE AUDITION INVOLVE?
Auditions will be brief and informal. Applicants will be asked to perform two short, contrasting pieces of music as well as a short piece of sight-reading.
