Join the Norwich Philharmonic Orchestra

The Norwich Phil is a friendly orchestra and, while our players have varied musical backgrounds, we enjoy tackling challenging symphonic repertoire. The standard is high and we take pride in pushing ourselves and working hard to achieve the best possible results as we make music together.

We are always interested to hear from accomplished orchestral players although there are currently waiting lists for all sections. However, that shouldn't discourage applicants from enquiring as the list situation is subject to frequent change, and new players are welcome to audition for a place in the orchestra if one is available.

When applying to join the orchestra, please give details of orchestral experience, grades attained (minimum grade 8) and/or music college attended.

Auditions and/or trials are heard by an orchestra member from the relevant section and decisions are made in consultation with the Orchestra Conductor and/or Leader.

At the very least, if a place is not immediately available, we may be able to put your name on our extras list.
