The Ernest Read Symphony Orchestra (ERSO) is one of London’s leading and longest established amateur orchestras. We’re a friendly group playing to a very high standard and perform 5 Sunday concerts a year with Sunday rehearsals in Camden. We’re proud to work with Principal Conductor, Christopher Stark, best-known as co-founder and Musical Director of the RPS Award-winning Multi-Story Orchestra. Our professional leader, John Crawford, is a Professor at Trinity Laban, and young professionals lead the string sections.
Anyone who plays in at least once concert in the season, including the rehearsals, will be eligible to enter our ERSO Soloist of the Year competition. The prize will be to play a concerto with ERSO in June 2020.
We are always keen to hear from experienced (grade 8+) string or brass players who might be interested in joining us. Check us out on erso.london and get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org.
