We invite applications to work with the orchestra on a rolling basis from musicians who:

- perform to a professional standard on a period instrument used orchestrally (e.g. violin, viola, cello, double bass, viola da gamba, violone, harpsichord, chamber organ, traverso, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, chalumeau, natural trumpet, baroque/classical horn, sackbut). Please note that applicants must have a period-appropriate setup e.g. a modern violin and bow would not fit the criteria. 

- are citizens of an EU country or the UK, or have an appropriate permit in place to work in the EU.

- can demonstrate a track record of excellence in period performance, with a good degree of orchestral experience.
