Then get in touch with us at the Ernest Read Symphony Orchestra (ERSO), one of London’s leading and longest established amateur orchestra, which prides itself on high quality performance of diverse and challenging repertoire. We play 5 or 6 concerts a year and hold around 3 or 4 rehearsals per concert on Sundays at Camden School for Girls.
We would love to hear from experienced (grade 8+) string and brass players who would like to join us and we are especially keen to find strong first violin players.
Our membership is diverse and includes conservatoire students, music teachers, professionals at the start of their careers and skilled and experienced amateur musicians.
We are a really friendly group playing to a very high standard under the direction of excellent professional conductors. Our string sections are led and coached by our professional leader John Crawford (Trinity professor and ex-BBC Symphony) and a team of young professional string players. And we have a lot of REALLY good cake….
We have some amazing concerts planned: our May 20th concert involves working with talented young conductors on fabulous repertoire including Tchaikovsky’s Romeo & Juliet and Gershwin’s An American in Paris and next season includes works such as Shostakovitch’s 6th Symphony and Prokofiev Cinderella.
If you are interested in playing in our May concert (see info below) or in joining us more permanently, please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org
