Opus Orchestra is a professional chamber orchestra based in the Waikato. Currently Opus performs 3-4 times each year and is the preferred orchestra for collaborations with other organisations in the region. We are now inviting talented musicians of at least LTCL (or equivalent standard) to apply to audition for Opus. We also welcome expressions of interest from musicians who already play for other professional orchestras and who may also wish to play for Opus.
Auditionees whose applications are accepted will be sent orchestral excerpts three weeks before their audition date and in addition will be required to prepare a concerto movement of their choice. Applicants wishing to audition for two instruments (e.g. flute and piccolo), will be sent the excerpts for both instruments and will be allocated two adjacent audition time slots. The audition panel consists of the Artistic Director, and Concertmaster or relevant section principal or appropriate players’ representative.
Musicians may be contracted for specific events or for a full year of activity. Dates are usually set in the previous year. Please note contracts with Opus Orchestra are only available to New Zealand and Australian Citizens and Residents.
Auditions will be held in Hamilton on the weekend of 13th – 14th July 2019. To submit your application/expression of interest, please complete the online form below.Confidential enquiries can be directed to Katrina Carswell – email@example.com
