Music Audition


Open auditions for Nevis Ensemble’s August 2018 exciting 70-date tour of community venues in Glasgow and around Scotland.

Nevis Ensemble is thrilled to announce auditions to join the orchestra for its inaugural tour around Scotland as part of Glasgow 2018.

Interested musicians are asked to complete the Application Form, as well as the Equalities Monitoring Form, and return by email to hello@nevisensemble.org by 20 March 2018.

Auditions will take place on 9 April 2018 (with an extra day on 11 April if necessary) in Glasgow. Please note that not all applicants will be guaranteed an audition.

The audition shall last around 20 minutes and will include:

Short programme of around 8 mins (candidate’s own choice)
One orchestral excerpt
Sight reading
Short discussion

We are looking to recruit 40 orchestral musicians on the following instruments:

violin x13; viola x4; ‘cello x4; double bass x3 (one player doubling electric bass); flute x2; oboe x2; clarinet x2; bassoon x2; saxophone x2; trumpet x2; trombone x1; French horn x2; percussion x1

Musicians should be available between 27 July and 13 August (inclusive) for an intense tour of 70 performances focusing in communities around Glasgow, whilst taking in other parts of Scotland as well. This position is non-paid, but Nevis will cover all travel expenses, subsistence and accommodation for participants over the course of the tour. Generally, we would expect our musicians to be at the outset of their careers (perhaps studying or just out of study), with an age range of 18-26, although anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to apply. Musicians who have not had a standard entry into the industry are particular encouraged.

Please feel free to enquire at hello@nevisensemble.org if you have any questions about your application.

Come and join us for an experience you wont forget!
