Players are invited individually, usually as a result of personal contact. Most are amateur musicians with lots of experience of orchestral playing. There are sometimes vacancies for brass, woodwind or percussion, but we always need more string players. We will benefit from the biggest possible string section, you are welcome to tell any of your friends who might be interested and ask them to contact us, or please let us know about good players that we can invite. If you can also pass on the names of the violin fixers for your local orchestras, to whom we can circulate the details, that will be a big help.
Please reserve your place as soon as you are sure you can be there on the day. If you have to withdraw at a late stage, we ask you to arrange a suitable dep, and let us know.
The cost to you for the day will be £25. You can now pay by online transfer (preferred) to the Oxford Rehearsal Day account at Barclays Bank: sort code 200109, account no 2338 4403 (please put your name in the comments field for identification). Or send a cheque payable to ‘Oxford Rehearsal Day’. Please don’t leave it until the day to pay.
