Summer 2016 Concerto Competiton

Could you be the next Alison Balsom or Nicola Benedetti?

Burford Orchestra is launching an exciting competition to find three talented young musicians to play a movement of a concerto of their choice at its 2016 summer concert. This represents an extremely rare opportunity for gifted young musicians to showcase their talents accompanied by a full symphony orchestra.

To select our three soloists, applicants will be invited to perform their chosen work with piano accompaniment at an audition to be held in early February 2016. The three winning candidates will then perform with the full orchestra at our concert on Sunday 3 July 2016, at 3pm at Burford School. To apply please use our online submission form. 

  • Applications must be received no later than Friday 8 January 2016.
  • Applicants must be school age (up to and including year 13).
  • Applicants must be available to rehearse on one or two Monday nights in Witney in the run-up to the concert.
  • Applicants are free to choose what they would like to play but are advised to consider selecting established works as it may prove difficult for orchestral parts to be obtained for less well-known pieces.

Please do not hesitate to contact the orchestra if you have any queries.

You can enter by completing the online form below, or by posting a printed entry form to 14 Courtlands Road, Shipton-under-Wychwood, OX7 6DF. Entries must be received by Friday 8 January 2016.
