You can apply for a place with one of the orchestras below by completing the online audition application form on this page.

Once your form has been received you will then be asked to send through a recording - AUDIO only - of your chosen audition piece. It is not necessary to have an accompanist. Please also scan and send a copy of the music along with your recording.

Your recording will be reviewed by the Director and Assistant Director of the orchestra; followed by an online audition. During the audition there will be a sight-reading and scales exercise and time for you to ask questions.

If your audition is successful, you will be invited to join the orchestra and will be asked to complete a membership and commitment form.
