Musicians – Percussion
The Welsh Musical Theatre Orchestra is one of the UK’s brightest up-coming orchestras, with a broadening portfolio of work throughout Wales, the UK and internationally.
The Orchestra is almost entirely funded by the revenue from concert ticket sales and its own fund raising initiatives and this is supplemented by some small grants from businesses and local councils.
The Welsh Musical Theatre Orchestra is looking for outstanding drummers and percussionists to add to a database of exceptional players who are invited to play at our concerts.
Percussionists will need to have an excellent command of both tuned and untuned instruments and be used to playing musical theatre charts that include rapid and secure changing.
Drummers should have outstanding ensemble skills and be able to play dynamically at any volume.
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.
