Would you like the chance to play a concerto with ERSO under the baton of the eminent Peter Stark?
Then the ERSO Soloist of the Year 2018 competition could be of interest.
This competition is open to anyone over 18 years of age, of any nationality, who has played in at least concert with ERSO, including the concert on October 8th, 2017 with Samuel Burstin. We still have a few spaces left in our string sections for this concert.
Auditions will take place on mornings of 5 and 12 November. Candidates will be asked to perform part of one movement of their chosen concerto, accompanied by piano.
Up to 4 semi-finalists will be selected to work on their concerto with ERSO and Peter Stark at an open rehearsal on January 21, 2018.
The winner will have the opportunity to perform their concerto in our 11 February Concert with Peter Stark, which will also include Walton’s Portsmouth Point and Vaughan Williams’ London Symphony.
