Do you play an instrument?
Do you love show tunes?
You're the one that we want
We love a good show tune or three here at the Richmond Light Orchestra and are partial to a bit of film music too! If you feel the same way and play an instrument then we'd love to hear from you.
We value enthusiasm and commitment over playing standard, however for your own enjoyment we suggest you will need to have some experience of following a conductor. Rather than holding auditions, we'd prefer you pop along to one or two rehearsals and decide for yourselves if we're the right fit for you.
Should players request or be invited to join the orchestra, a termly subscription fee of £80 is required to become a member. This fee contributes towards the costs of running the orchestra, such as venue hire, purchasing of sheet music, professional fees etc.
We are currently looking for ALL string and brass players (in particular double bass, trumpets, horns and trombones) to join us for the ride. We also have vacancies for alto, tenor & baritone saxes. The remainder of our woodwind sections (flute, oboe, bassoon and clarinet) are currently full, however, we encourage you to still apply so you can be added to our waiting list. You will be notified if any places become available.
If you'd like to give us a try please get in touch with us by completing the form below so we can give you more information and arrange for you to attend a forthcoming rehearsal.
