Recruiting Musicians for London City Orchestra

Posted on by

As a graduate of ICSM in 2009, I was an active member of all things musical- orchestras, light opera etc. For a while after I graduated, I couldn’t find anywhere to continue my musical interests which had kept me sane at ICSM! So
I would like to offer you the chance to join the London City Orchestra.

We are undertaking a process of reconversion, looking not only at expanding but also at establishing a sustainable amateur orchestra in London, which allows non-professional musicians of the highest level and young professional musicians and students of some of London´s top institutions, to have the opportunity to interact and make music together, benefiting from one another.

Students would benefit from gaining exposure to more repertoire, making new connections and being able to seek advise on global matters from all of the different professions that take part in our orchestra.
The standard which they would bring would in turn help the orchestra grow. We have some very exciting plans ahead for London City Orchestra, which are beginning to materialise. We are directed by Pablo Urbina, a graduate from the Royal College of Music and an extremely talented, up-and-coming conductor. His musicianship has helped the orchestra improve substantially and we think the students would gain a lot from working with him.

If you are interested (particularly strings, bassoon, trombones, tuba, percussion and harp) please contact us: members@londoncityorchestra.com or visit our website: www.londoncityorchestra.com
