If you play one of the instruments above and would like to be considered please email us with the following:


- A brief covering letter stating your interest.


- A short CV.


- Links to audio and/or video of your playing unaccompanied. These should include standard orchestral excerpts and/or sections of movements from a variety of works (baroque/classical/romantic and fast/slow), with a minimum total duration of 6 minutes. Smartphone recordings are perfectly acceptable.

Application Deadline: Sunday 2 October 2016.

Each audition will last around 15 minutes and be performed without accompaniment. You may play any excerpts or pieces you wish, including anything already submitted in your audio/video links. You will also be asked to play several excerpts at sight.

All applications will be acknowledged soon after they are received. However we regret that subsequently we will only contact applicants we wish to invite for a live audition.
