YSO is looking for a Fifth Horn. This involves deputising for any of the four fixed section members at rehearsals when they are absent, or otherwise bumping on first. The position would suit a sensitive horn player who would not otherwise want the responsibility of playing a fixed part.

We currently have two vacancies in the Viola section, and one in the Cello section.

If you are interested, please send your playing CV to: ysorch@googlemail.com
Players should be of grade 8 standard or demonstrate equivalent orchestral experience.
