Vacancy for a new conductor

Since we began the recruitment process, Covid-19 has intervened. We thank all those who have applied in the meantime. The auditions planned for 31 March will not now take place. We will be in touch about the shortlisting and audition processes as soon as we can and keep this page updated.

The Orchestra is delighted to congratulate Michael Cobb on his recent success in securing a conducting position with Opera Nationale de Lyon. He follows our two previous conductors who secured prestigious professional conducting positions after working with us. We now seek a new principal conductor to work on our ambitious programme to take up post in September 2020.

The audition piece that the Orchestra will ask shortlisted applicants to conduct is Mendelssohn's concert overture The Hebrides.
