Become a Member of TSO
For string players:
We do not hold formal auditions. If you wish to play in the orchestra, telephone the Leader and she will invite you to join us for a trial period (usually 3 rehearsals). After this you will be in a better position to decide whether we are what you are looking for, and we can see whether you fit well into the section.
Currently we have vacancies in all sections of the strings.
For wind players and brass players:
What is expected of members:
That they attend rehearsals, practise orchestral parts, and are responsible for any music allocated to them. They will also be expected to share responsibilities (such as setting up for concerts or rehearsals).
It is the policy of the orchestra to encourage both younger and less experienced players; and so there is a category of rehearsing member to enable players who are not yet of the standard to play in concerts to attend rehearsals without performing in the concerts.
Subscriptions for 2017/18:
