How might I start playing with KSO?
We are always pleased to hear from new players and you don’t need to know anyone in the orchestra to approach us. All we ask is that you understand the high level of achievement we aim for and fulfil the promises you make to attend.
We don’t usually audition players, but we like to give them a chance to get to know us, and we them. In the wind section, for example, you might attend a rehearsal as a dep, and perhaps then play a concert, and you might then become a regular. In the strings, you might be offered the chance to play in a run of rehearsals and a concert before potentially being invited back.
It would be helpful if you have been to one of our concerts, but we may be able to arrange for you to observe a rehearsal as well.
Please contact the appropriate fixer using the buttons below, indicating your standard, experience and availability, plus the range of instruments you play and can access (for example, if you are a trumpeter, do you have a flugel horn, piccolo trumpet or cornet?).
We don’t want to over-promise, as we already have a strong list, but we’re happy to hear from anyone committed to excellent music-making.
