Singers Needed

The London City Orchestra, Camden, Bromley and Green Street Green choirs are singing and playing their way through Ralph Vaughan Williams, A Sea Symphony on 23rd and 30th November 2019.

 

This epic work A Sea Symphony is Vaughan Williams' first and longest symphony, it was first performed at the Leeds Festival in 1910, with the composer conducting. One of the first symphonies in which a choir is used throughout the work and is an integral part of the musical texture.

 

If you would like to join us and sing with one of the choirs, then please email Amanda at 

members@londoncityorchestra.com.

 

Please note that this is a complex work to sing and we could only take singers that have either sung this work before or who are used to sight singing this level of piece

Auditions

All members are required to audition for their place in the orchestra by way of playing a short series of excerpts to our conductor, Pablo Urbina. This is merely to judge if you are able to play to the standard that is conducted within a normal rehearsal and to aid with seating arrangements. You will not be made to play any solos (unless you are applying for a string leader, woodwind or brass position).

 

We are sure everyone will play wonderfully and we look forward to having more members!

The fees help pay for all the costs of running the orchestra (such as venue hire for rehearsals, website costs, music hire, insurance etc.) as well as the all-important tea and biscuits in our rehearsal breaks!

Please note that the first rehearsal for new members is free, in order to give you a chance to try us out. After that fees are payable by bank transfer (preferable), cheque or cash.
