All prospective members of the orchestra must audition for entry. You will need to complete an audition form before attending. However, before completing the form, please contact Julian Hardwick (Email Now) to find out whether there is a space available for your instrument as some of our sections are currently full.
We organise a ‘Taster Day’ each term which allows interested potential players to experience the orchestra for themselves and then decide whether they would like to audition. To find out the date of the next Taster Day, please follow the link to the Concerts and Events page.
Auditions take place at the orchestra’s home, St Paul’s Community Centre in Wimbledon at the start of each term and usually on Sunday afternoons. At the audition you will be asked to play two contrasting pieces of music, unaccompanied and you may also be asked to do some sight reading. Please note that playing from photocopied music is NOT permitted.
