NZSO FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMME

"The NZSO Fellowship opportunity has been an enriching and awe-inspiring experience! I have learnt so much about orchestral playing, rehearsal etiquette, touring, and all the work that goes on behind the scenes, and I have met some amazing musicians along the way. I would highly recommend this programme to anyone trying to make a career out of orchestral performance" – Patrick Hayes

APPLICATIONS FOR 2019 NZSO FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMME ARE NOW OPEN

If you are thinking about an orchestral career, this is a great opportunity for you to hone your skills. Once you have been selected, you will get first hand practical experience of what it is like to work with a world class professional orchestra. During your year-long association with the Orchestra you will work with NZSO principals, observe and rehearse with the NZSO and interact with international conductors and soloists.

To apply for this programme, please send us a copy of your CV and a cover letter outlining your musical aspirations, along with recordings of yourself performing two contrasting pieces. If necessary, short listed candidates may be required to audition live. If you are selected to participate in the programme, the NZSO will cover transport and accommodation costs associated with the Fellowship.
