Auditions Information

Auditions for 2015-16 Academy will take place in Cambridge, Norwich and Ipswich. 

Applications for Britten Sinfonia Academy 2015-16 will be open in November 2014.

 

After the appropriate deadline, you will be informed of your audition date and sent a piece of chamber music to prepare.

The auditions are in the same kind of format as the Orchestra’s real auditions. Audition days are designed so that you have time to get to know us, and us you. Sessions will last for approximately 3 hours and in that time you will have the opportunity to meet, hear and play alongside Britten Sinfonia members who will be the Academy tutors. The session will include:

• Introduction from Britten Sinfonia musicians
• Group exercises
• Work as a small chamber group (alongside other young musicians and Britten Sinfonia musicians)
• Solo performance performed to the panel (c. 10 minutes)
• Short interview with the panel

We will supply a professional accompanist but if you are more comfortable with your own accompanist, you’re more than welcome to bring them with you.
