Information for prospective players
Each year Stonnington Symphony stages a three concert series in the Malvern Town Hall, usually in May, August and November. An additional free outdoor performance takes place on the final Saturday of February each year. This event, The Classics: Symphony, is produced by the City of Stonnington.
Stonnington Symphony does not hold auditions. Instead we have guideline standards which all players should have attained. If you have reached Grade 8 AMEB (or equivalent) on your chosen instrument, have at least 2 years post-educational orchestral experience and would like to be considered to play in the orchestra, then please contact the office. Your details will be forwarded to the relevant section convenor who will contact you as soon as an appropriate vacancy becomes available.
Membership of the organisation is a prerequiste for all players. An annual membership fee of $20.00 is payable each financial year. In addition, players also pay a concert fee of $40 for each program in which they play.
Players are required to attend six rehearsals for each program in which they are scheduled to play. These rehearsals take place in the Malvern Town Hall from 7:30pm to 10:30pm on designated Tuesday and occasional Thursday evenings. Players are required to commit to all rehearsals for the performance in which they are involved.
