Who can join the BGSO?
In a nutshell, anyone and everyone! As long as we have a vacancy within the orchestra, we allow musicians of all abilities and backgrounds. The only things we ask is that you are over 16 years of age, and can commit to the majority of rehearsals. Many of our members hadn't played their instrument in years before joining the BGSO, but now they practise daily! Details of current vacancies are listed below. If you are interested in joining the BGSO, get in touch by CLICKING HERE.
Rehearsals tend to happen on alternate Sundays at AB Plus on Lower Essex Street in Birmingham. Whilst we don't ask for a minimum standard, we do ask that each player can commit to the majority of rehearsals.
At present, we are currently looking for players of the following instruments to join the BGSO:
Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass, French Horn, Percussion, Harp, Trombone
If you don't play one of these instruments, don't worry. Please still get in touch as we may need extra players for a future concert. We'll add you to a waiting list and give you a call if a vacancy arises.
We ask all BGSO players to pay a small amount each to cover rehearsal space and other costs. Normally this is £7 per month, but will be reduced or waived on negotiation with the BGSO's Treasurer. Get in touch for more information.
