Applications now open for EOS 2023 – vacancies in all string sections

An opportunity to tackle exciting repertoire that most amateurs don’t usually get a chance to play. The week is suitable for experienced orchestral players with excellent sight reading skills. Scholarship places, which waive all subscriptions, are available to young string and harp players and there are some subsided places for full-time students.

Vacancies remain in all string sections. All other sections are now full. 

If you are a woodwind, brass, or percussion player, we ask you to apply to the Waiting List. We will contact you if a vacancy becomes available because someone drops out. You do not need to pay a deposit to join the Waiting List.
