We’re looking for an Orchestral Leader!

Posted on 13th Apr 2023 05:26:46 by Admin

The Hull Philharmonic Society is pleased to invite expressions of interest for the position of orchestral leader due to the upcoming retirement of our current leader, Mrs Patricia Mitchell. Given our express commitment to supporting local musicians, we will consider applications from violinists who are either current playing members of the Hull Philharmonic Orchestra or otherwise located in Hull and the wider local area including the East Riding and York.




Please submit a short statement providing an overview of your musical training and experiences, especially of orchestral performance and leadership, as well as an explanation about why you are interested in this position and what you would bring to the role and to the society. Please note that the orchestral leader will be expected to become a regular playing member of the HPO and attend weekly rehearsals held on Wednesday evenings throughout the concert season starting in September 2023. The position carries an honorarium.

Expressions of interest should be submitted to [email protected] by 5th May 2023. Auditions will be held at the end of May.

The orchestra is also looking for string players with a competence of around Grade 8 or equivalent to join us for our 23/24 season.
