Double need for double basses!

bassesWe are looking for two more bass players to boost our bass section for a fantastic concert at St Johns, Waterloo on 21 May. We are playing a Nordic programme, conducted by Tom Hammond, and featuring award-winning young soloist Dinara Klinton. The programme consists of the Overture and Dance of the Cockerels from Maskerade by Nielsen, the Grieg Piano Concerto and Sibelius 5 Symphony.  There are 2 rehearsals (10-5pm) on & and 14 May at Camden Girls School, NW5 2DB plus a rehearsal on the concert day at St. Johns, Waterloo.

The bass section will be working with Mark Lipski who will be acting as our Double Bass Mentor and the rehearsals will include a double bass master class on the music from the programme. Mark has extensive professional freelance playing, coaching and teaching experience so this is a fantastic opportunity for players!

The Ernest Read Symphony Orchestra (ERSO) is one of London’s leading and longest established amateur orchestras and we are a friendly group, working to a high standard over a concentrated rehearsal period for each concert.  We rehearse and perform on Sundays and work with a professional leader and professional conductors of a very high calibre.

If you are a grade 8+ bass player and are interested in playing in this concert or joining us more permanetnly please contact us on
