Auditions

webmaster Rehearsals

Auditions for the orchestra take place in September for new auditionees.

Pupils will normally be informed by their tutor when they are ready to audition and the procedures involved. Private pupils can obtain an audition form from MHenderson@pkc.gov.uk. All successful applicants must attend rehearsals on Mondays from 6-8.15pm and attend the annual residential music camp in April.
