Instrumentalists

Come and join us ….

The Cheltenham Philharmonic Orchestra is the principal orchestra for amateur players in the town.

New members, who can play to a good standard, are always welcome, subject to vacancies. There is no formal audition, but there is an informal assessment period of four weeks for you and us to decide whether we are suited.

Where there is no full time vacancy, players may be put on a waiting list and contacted when there is a need for extras or deputies.

Full members pay an annual subscription, currently £85 per year (£45 for students). With up to 40 rehearsals a year, this works out at about £2.20 per rehearsal.

Current vacancies

Strings : We are happy to hear from string players of all sections. At the moment we have vacancies for Violin, Viola and Double Bass.

Brass : French Horns

Woodwind : Piccolo
