We're excited to be planning our 9th Season production of the Magic Flute. Auditions are still open for a second violin, cello and bass player to join our orchestra of emerging artists.

This is an opportunity to learn in a supportive environment, as one performer said of last year's production,

"We all had a fantastic time, great as an experience for both musician players and singers to support each other and get to know each other which is such a rare and special element to the company".

All accommodation and food during our time in France is provided and a fee is paid to cover travel and incidental expenses. The commitment is for:

  • Afternoon of 26th July - orchestral rehearsal in London 
  • 29th July - Travel to the Charente Maritime, France
  • 30th July onwards - rehearsals at the Château de Panloy
  • 2nd & 3rd August - performances
  • 4th August - depart
