Principal Trumpet Vacancy


The Slaithwaite Philharmonic Orchestra, conductor Benjamin Ellin, is a dynamic amateur orchestra, known for its diverse and exciting programming and attracting top quality soloists.

We are looking for a Principal Trumpet player who will be keen to commit to this friendly team of dedicated musicians since our current player is now retiring.

Details of the Orchestra’s long history, together with repertoire and concert programmes – including collaborations with Focus Opera London – and information on tours to the Isle of Man, China and France can be found on our website.

The Orchestra rehearses every Monday evening from 7.30pm at the Slaithwaite Civic Hall and performs its 4 main concerts in Huddersfield Town Hall, as well as more intimate community concerts in Slaithwaite.

We are looking for a player ideally of Performance Degree Level, with good sight-reading and transposing skills and who is familiar with the orchestral repertoire.
