GUITAR CIRCUS is excited to announce that we will be auditioning for our London and Birmingham ensembles in November 2010. We are looking for gifted young classical guitarists aged 12 upwards who have reached Grade 5 standard or higher to train monthly during term-time under the inspirational direction of Gary Ryan (London) and Mark Ashford (Birmingham)
Auditions dates are as follows:
Sunday 7 November 2010: Royal College of Music, London
Sunday 28 November 2010: Birmingham Conservatoire
Because auditions for GUITAR CIRCUS are very much a ‘hands-on’ experience, all applicants will play their prepared solo piece for the panel and will also have a 2-hour ensemble trial together. If you’re allocated a morning solo audition, then you’ll remain with us until the end of the ensemble trial at 2.30 PM, if your solo audition is in our afternoon session, you’ll take part in the ensemble trial and then stay until you have finished your solo audition later in the afternoon.
Further details about the audition process are here on the website, and you are able to apply on-line as well. Once you’ve pressed the send button on your application please don’t forget to send your supporting reference, photo and £13 audition fee to us so we are able to confirm your audition place.
