How to join

Sinfonietta is an auditioned orchestra with auditions being held in September of each year.  We aim to keep these auditions as friendly and relaxed as possible.

All current and former members must also re-audition for their seat each year. This keeps the audition process as fair as possible and ensures the overall standard is maintained.

Auditions last approximately 10 minutes and include:

  • 2 prepared short, contrasting pieces (no longer than 3 mins each)
  • Sight reading

The sight reading is given to each candidate a few minutes before the audition to quickly prepare.

See our posts for updates on when the next auditions are being held.
