Vacancies

Empty seats We have a vacancy for a co-principal trombone. Rehearsals are on Monday evenings in Bromley. Positions like these with an excellent non-professional orchestra don’t come up very often so please tell your trombone playing friends and contact us if interested. We also have vacancies for harps. Most other instruments have a waiting list.
