This year we are holding auditions on the 16th and 17th of December for the entire 2018 season which will cover both the Easter and Summer courses. The audition will last about 15 minutes and we ask you to prepare two contrasting pieces which we will most likely hear short sections of, followed by a short piece of sight-reading.

Easter

The Easter course will have a pre-course rehearsal day on the 4th of March, followed by the course which will run from the 30th of March to the 7th of April inclusive of two concerts. The first concert will be on the 6th of April at the RSNO Centre, Glasgow, and the second concert will be on the 7th of April at the Usher Hall, Edinburgh. The players subsidised fee will be £295.

Summer

The Summer course will run from the 27th of July to the 5th of August inclusive of three concerts. The first concert will be on the 3rd of August at the Beach Ball Room, Aberdeen as part of the Aberdeen International Youth Festival, and the second and third concerts will be on the 4th and 5th of August at Greyfriars Kirk as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.  The players subsidised fee will be £350.

We are able to offer financial support where necessary.
