The King's Philharmonic Wind Orchestra
If you are a professionally-aspiring musician or music enthusiast in- or out of university, play at Grade 7/8+ level, equivalent, or above, and are committed to music: The King's Philharmonic needs you and we would like to invite you to sign up for membership in our Orchestra. We perform a challenging repertoire including new commissions from emerging composers and with young solo artists and inspire young musicians through our education scheme. Membership (as well as registration and auditions) are, of course, free of charge and you will receive feedback. There is a limited number of bursaries available to cover costs from your place in the orchestra such as travel expenses. Auditions are friendly, positive, and great learning experiences. Rehearsals in Aberdeen and concerts in and outside of Scotland are either on weekends, holidays or out-of-term time to ensure playing opportunities for commuting members.
The Orchestra is open to students from all universities as well as the wider community. International applicants who are staying for the full term are welcome to apply for audition. Membership in the orchestra is by invitation or application online. Some applicants might be invited to an audition which will be held in the MacRobert Building, University of Aberdeen, or through an online Face-Time or Skype interview.
