Tutti viola

Alex Fletcher

For many, joining the BBC Philharmonic means a job for life – but deciding to join is a big decision. As well as being highly competitive it involves long and irregular working hours; there is no routine.

The first hurdle is an audition. If successful, candidates will be shortlisted to work for a trial period. This is their opportunity to prove that they can compliment the orchestra, respond well to changes and fit in to the tight knit community that is the BBC Philharmonic.

The sheer range of work sets this orchestra apart from many others; from playing live for Songs of Praise, doing recordings for BBC Radio 3 and the BBC Proms to going on international tours, a job at the BBC Philharmonic means an exciting and varied career.
