Promoting live orchestral performance in the community since 1922

Join the FSO

The Orchestra welcomes new players of a high standard. Membership, subject to vacancies, is open to players of Grade 8 standard or higher. Please refer to our Recruitment Policy for details of our recruitment process and our Members Code for information on membership rules.

We currently have a vacancy for several rank and file players in the String Sections and are particularly keen to expand our strong double bass section. We are also keen to recruit a harpist for the 2019-2020 season and beyond.

Players of other instruments are encouraged to submit their details even if there are no published vacancies, as we occasionally have need for deputies in some concerts or rehearsals. 

Please fill in the following form. All fields are mandatory.

By clicking "Submit Enquiry" you are consenting to the FSO storing your personal data and using it to contact you about joining the orchestra, in accordance with current data protection law.  Should you not join the orchestra, your data will be deleted.  Please read our Privacy Policy before you submit your information.
