Aurora Orchestra

Principal Horn

Aurora Orchestra is seeking to recruit a Principal Horn with wide-ranging experience encompassing solo and chamber work as well as orchestral section leading. The role is offered on a freelance basis with approximately 50–70 days of work per year. Aurora’s repertoire is extremely broad with projects varying from small unconducted chamber projects to larger-scale symphonic projects.

Founded in 2005 under Principal Conductor Nicholas Collon, Aurora has quickly become one of Europe’s leading chamber orchestras, known for combining world-class performance with adventurous programming and concert presentation. It has flourishing London series at Kings Place and Southbank Centre, and regularly tours internationally, with recent host venues including Kölner Philharmonie, Concertgebouw Amsterdam and Victoria Concert Hall (Singapore).

Aurora players are offered performing opportunities that are unusual elsewhere in the orchestral sector, including performing solo or chamber repertoire within an orchestral concert, playing whole symphonies from memory, working with collaborators including choreographers and directors, and adopting a distinct theatrical approach to concert presentation. Principals are intimately involved in the artistic life of the orchestra, and are encouraged to make contributions to the programme, from suggesting repertoire or artistic partners to driving individual collaborative projects.

Application deadline: Monday 20 January 2020

Shortlisted applicants will be called for an audition in London on Wednesday 26 February 2020. Candidates are requested to mention potential availability issues regarding this date in their application.
Closing date: 20 Jan 2020
