Join Us

If you’d like to join us, please tell us something about yourself via the Introduction Form.  Someone in charge of your desired ensemble will get back to you.  (If we don’t have room for your instrument / voice right now, we will add you to our waiting list so we can get in touch with you should that position become available.)

You can also come along to a rehearsal to see how we work.  All rehearsal dates, times, and locations (with maps) are updated in the ESME Full Calendar – do check this before turning up, as sometimes details change.

These voices/instruments will find a particularly warm welcome in the ensembles:
Singers: tenors, basses (women are welcome to join our waiting list, we will contact you when spots open up!)
Orchestra: cellos, bassoon, violas, double bass, trombone, violins
Big Band: percussion, trombone, bass (electric and upright)

We are generally on break in July / August after the Summer Concert, and again most of December and January after the Winter Concert.  Please check the ESME Full Calendar to see when we start up again.
