Principal bassoonist required

We are looking for a regular principal bassoon from January 2018 — Grade 8 plus, orchestral experience, and informal audition (3 to 4 rehearsals). To apply, follow the contact link and sent us brief details of your playing experience.

You can find more on our rehearsal venue, times and schedule on the players page.

Kingston Philharmonia was founded in 1974 by Walter Wurzburger, who had established himself in Kingston as a composer, player, conductor and teacher. He conducted the orchestra for the next twenty-one years.

For 15 years, until April 2013, the orchestra was conducted by Levon Parikian.

Since then, we have appointed a series of guest conductors. In July, 2015, following a highly successful concert, we were fortunate in securing the services of Scott Wilson as our conductor and Musical Director. Scott has now given his last concert with us, and we are currently trialling two excellent candidates for our next two concerts; Rupert Bond for the November 2017 concert and Lewis Gaston for March 2018.

We are now an established part of the musical landscape in Kingston-on-Thames, giving four concerts a year, normally in St Andrew's Church, Surbiton.

We always welcome new players, particularly string players, and especially violins and cellos. We occasionally have vacancies for wind and brass, for which there is an informal audition. Please see the join us page for more details and how to apply.
