Founded in 1898, the York Symphony Orchestra is the city’s oldest amateur orchestra. Its aim is to give amateur musicians in York and the surrounding area the opportunity to rehearse and perform works from the orchestral repertoire. It is particularly keen to encourage younger players, and many of its soloists are young musicians with links to York. The orchestra meets weekly for rehearsals and gives three concerts each year, in November/December, March, and June/July.
We currently have vacancies in the violin and viola sections. If you are interested, please send your playing CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
Players should be of grade 8 standard or demonstrate equivalent orchestral experience.
