If you are offered a position and decide to continue playing in the orchestra, you will be expected to pay a membership fee and purchase a season ticket, both of which are essential to the orchestra’s ability to operate and provide the music-making environment that we all enjoy.

The annual membership fee is $132 ($80 for full-time students), pro rata for joining after the first concert.

Members are obliged to purchase one regular or senior ticket to each concert for which their instrument is scored (subscription packs are available for 3 and 4 concerts). NOTE: During the current COVID-19 restrictions and the resulting uncertainty, we are not selling subscriptions.

If you are interested in joining, please contact us here (select the “Join our orchestra” subject).
