Looking for the best amateur players in South London: Brixton Chamber Orchestra's open auditions

Brixton Chamber Orchestra - open auditions

My local orchestra, Brixton Chamber Orchestra, is recruiting voluntary players. The orchestra, which is made up of a core of young professional players directed by Matthew O''Keeffe, also has base of volunteer players who are invited to join the professional principals and play side-by-side in full-orchestral concerts. So BCO is looking for the best amateur players in South London to join them.

There are no regular rehearsals, everything is project based with around five projects per year and extremely varied repertoire with events such as Lambeth Country Show, Summer & Christmas Estates Tours, Opera Gala Concerts, Gospel Music Collaborations, Music Trails. Their most recent gig was Grime Orchestrated at Hootenanny Brixton, with the 15-piece orchestra alongside special guest rappers Duppy, MegaMikes and more. And Next up is Brixton Performs Festival, when BCO will be performing a special child friendly FREE performance at Brixton Windmill on Saturday 26 March, details from the BCO website.

If you’re a talented instrumentalist with orchestral experience and passion for performance and community, BCO wants to hear from you. Auditions will take place on Friday 31 March and Sunday 2 April in Brixton, full details from the orchestra's website and the sign up form.
