Thanks to all of you who have expressed an interest in playing with the orchestra.

We currently have vacancies for violas, 'cellos, double basses, trumpets, and trombones.

Please take a moment to familiarise yourselves with the set-up.

The Society is a Registered Charity and consists of the orchestra itself, its patrons and subscribers, and an executive committee appointed via the Annual General Meeting. The committee is made up of officers, playing members and subscriber representatives.

Membership of the orchestra involves application, audition, and acceptance by the executive committee in consultation with the appropriate Section Principal. Full membership costs £75 per annum, (payable in 2 instalments). Reduced rates are available to those in full-time education or suffering financial hardship.

Unfortunately, we do not have vacancies in all sections and applications will be considered in that light. If we cannot accommodate you as a playing member at the moment, your name can be placed with a Section Principal in case of unexpected opportunities.

You are welcome to e-mail about playing with us - but please remember that you pay us; not the other way round!

Please give details of your qualifications and playing experience (with dates), and send us contact details so we can get back to you.

If you are still in full time education, you might also want to consider the Yorkshire Youth Orchestra
