Keyboard Player

The Welsh Musical Theatre Orchestra is one of the UK’s brightest up-coming orchestras, with a broadening portfolio of work throughout Wales. The Orchestra is supported by First Great Western Railway and various grants from Cities and Community Councils.

The orchestra currently has strong links with theatres in South Wales and is beginning to develop similar links with theatres in Bristol and London, with a view to touring concerts throughout the UK in 2016.  The Welsh Musical Theatre Orchestra is based in South Wales and usually rehearses in Cardiff, with sectionals at players’ convenience organised by section principals.

The Welsh Musical Theatre Orchestra is looking for keyboard players to add to a database of exceptional players who are invited to play at our concerts. Fees and expenses vary from concert to concert and will be made clear at point of contract.

Successful candidates will have a sound knowledge of, and a passion for, the musical theatre genre.

Auditions will be held at the convenience of the panel in South Wales, although Skype auditions can be arranged where travel is prohibitive. Candidates will be asked to prepare two pieces supplied by WMTO and will be asked to sight-read a further piece.
