If you are a string, wind or brass player of grade 8+ standard and are interested in gaining some excellent orchestral experience and performing exciting repertoire please contact You can also find us on the ERSO facebook page.

We are always keen to hear from string players across all sections and would be particularly pleased to hear from trumpet and trombone players interested in joining the orchestra.

Players who have taken part in at least one ERSO concert (including the concert on October 8th, 2017 with Samuel Burstin) are eligible to apply for our ERSO Soloist of the Year competition, the prize being the chance to perform a concerto with ERSO, conducted by our Conductor Emeritus Peter Stark.
