Monday 25th November 2019

Applications now open for our development scheme for young professional instrumentalists

Pit Perfect is our scheme where young professional instrumentalists join the Glyndebourne Tour Orchestra as it travels the country, gaining their first professional operatic experience. 

The players participate on an equal footing with other members of the orchestra and are paid for their participation. We offer places to selected instrumentalists each year depending on our repertoire and which positions are available.

The Scheme, now entering its third year, extends the Glyndebourne Tour’s cornerstone commitment to nurturing young talent. It is designed to offer newly graduated players real-world professional work experience over a concentrated three-month period by putting them straight in at the deep end - the fastest way to learn!

Application deadline for Pit Perfect 2020: Wednesday 18 December 2019.
