Principal Clarinetist wanted:

Huddersfield Philharmonic Orchestra, one of the longest – established and leading amateur orchestras in the United Kingdom, has an opening for a principal clarinet, following the retirement of the previous incumbent after a tenure of 40 years.

The orchestra undertakes a minimum of 5 concerts each year, divided between Huddersfield Town Hall and Huddersfield Parish Church. Our repertoire is symphonic in nature and will require a player of outstanding ability and significant orchestral experience.

As an example, the coming season will include Shostakovich Festival Overture and Symphony No 12, plus Suite No 2 from Manuel De Falla’s The Three Cornered Hat.

The successful applicant will be expected to become a member of the orchestra (current annual subscription £100, unless in full-time education).

Applications to be submitted using the contact form. Further details, including audition pieces and process, will be forwarded in reply.

Closing date: midnight, Monday 25 July 2016
