If you are interested in joining the Academy of St Olave’s, then speak to us at one of our concerts or email us with your CV:

Players in the Academy come from a wide range of backgrounds including teachers, gifted amateurs, students, talented school children and professional players. The minimum standard is Grade 8 and we expect players to have a high level of commitment and enthusiasm.

The Academy of St Olave’s orchestra does not rehearse on a weekly basis – six rehearsals are scheduled over a 2 week period prior to each concert. Rehearsals are mostly in the evenings. The usual pattern of rehearsals is Tuesday – Thursday – Sunday (strings) – Tuesday – Friday – Saturday (afternoon and concert).  

Players are invited from a large pool of instrumentalists, according to the forces required.

If you would like to play with the orchestra in the future, please contact us by email using the appropriate email address above.
