The announcement of the launch of GUITAR CIRCUS has generated a great deal of interest and we’re already receiving on-line applications for our auditions in November. The audition dates are fully confirmed and will be held at the following venues:
8 Nov 2009 – London: Royal College of Music, Prince Consort Road, South Kensington, London, SW7 2BS
15 Nov 2009 – Birmingham: Birmingham Conservatoire, Paradise Place, Birmingham, B3 3HG
22 Nov 2009 – Manchester: Royal Northern College of Music, 124 Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9RD
The closing date for LONDON applications is 25 October, but applications for BIRMINGHAM and MANCHESTER close on 5 November.
We will be contacting everyone with the audition timetable the week following each closing date.
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 need to arrive 30 mins before the ensemble trial begins at 11.15 AM and then stay until you have finished your solo audition later in the afternoon.
Once you have applied on-line, don’t forget to send your supporting reference, photo and £12 audition fee to us so we are able to confirm your audition place.
