We would be grateful if audience members could take a lateral flow test prior to the concert and wear masks when moving around the concert hall.


Fifth Horn –┬áThis 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 section.

If you are interested, please send your playing CV to: ysorch@googlemail.com
