Come and work with Ireland's flagship period instrument orchestra!
We invite applications to work with the orchestra on a rolling basis from musicians who:
- perform to a professional standard on an orchestral period instrument (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 and must ensure that they:
- 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.
Young musicians aged 18-24 are encouraged to explore the opportunities on offer through the Irish Youth Baroque Orchestra and the Apprentice Programme.
Professional players of a period instrument should send a CV and a link to an audio/video sample of their work.
Please note that submissions are reviewed periodically and, due to the volume of correspondence received we cannot promise to respond to applications individually.
