Reduced subs for players aged 30 or under
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. New for 2024, we are introducing significantly reduced subsciptions for players aged 30 or under when the course starts.
Please use the application links on the Easter Orchestra Week page if you are a string/harp player. If you are a brass/woodwind player please note that all wind/brass places have now been allocated. Please join the Waiting List here: Join the Waiting List
