Please note, due to Covid-19, we hope to be able to play these concerts, but will only be able to play if it is safe to do so.


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 vacancies in the Viola and Violin sections.

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.
