Applying for the 2013 Easter Orchestra Course
We welcome experienced orchestral players of at least grade 8 standard. Good sight-reading skills are a must! Applicants should indicate their standard of playing and orchestral experience so that the Musical Directors can place them accordingly.
There are no remaining vacancies to fill. Late applications are now closed.
If you have any additional enquiries, please contact the Secretary, Angela Pettit-Jones.
Wind & brass
Wind and brass places in particular are limited, and there is an element of competition in selecting players. To ensure a sufficiently high standard of playing to make the course enjoyable for all members, it is crucial that wind and brass are experienced orchestral players with excellent sight-reading skills. Players should be prepared to divide the parts out fairly between the section. Please state your experience on your application form.
Student places and scholarships
Thanks to very generous support from the Yellow Car Charitable Trust, they are providing some student/young people’s scholarship places free of charge for string and harp players aged 25 or under.
The Musical Directors select players based on the need to achieve the highest possible standard of playing and a balanced and versatile orchestra.
The Musical Directors’ decision is final.
