Current Vacancies

Sudbury Symphony Orchestra (Essex/Suffolk border)

The Sudbury Symphony Orchestra is looking to recruit a 1st oboe.  The ideal person would be grade 8+ and be an experienced orchestral player; if you don’t quite fit this profile but are willing to grow with the orchestra then please don’t be put off!
We have about 45 members and rehearse weekly on a Thursday evening during term-time and perform three concerts a year, usually featuring a professional soloist.  We have a professional conductor (Matthew Andrews) and a professional leader.  We are a very friendly and supportive orchestra and we are particularly good at making sure new members are made to feel welcome.
Please email Hilary Spivey to apply or for more information, or click here.

The Learning Orchestra (central London)

The Learning Orchestra welcomes players of Grade 6+ to explore fairly ambitious classical repertoire with a friendly group, at a less intensive rehearsal pace than other orchestras.

Late-starter players and those reviving old skills welcome, as well as anyone who’d just like to play

Please email Sarah Ingle enquiries@learning-orchestra.org.uk to apply, or for more information, or click here.
