RNS-Moves

Are you a talented, professional-level musician who identifies as
deaf or disabled? If so, read on to find out how you can join
RNS Moves.

ABOUT RNS MOVES

RNS Moves is a new inclusive ensemble bringing together members of Royal Northern Sinfonia and disabled musicians from across the country to perform innovative concerts.

After a week of research and development work in January 2018 and a second phase of work culminating in its debut performance at Sage Gateshead in September 2018, RNS Moves is looking to further grow its work in producing and performing excellent music in an inclusive environment, providing high-quality performance opportunities for disabled artists.

The ensemble is a large directed chamber ensemble, grown out of Royal Northern Sinfonia’s commitment to chamber music performance.

AUDITIONS

We have worked with some brilliant musicians so far, but we know more are out there! We are holding auditions for those who are interested in joining a pool of musicians for rehearsals and performances with RNS Moves on a project-by-project, freelance basis. This allows the instrumentation for our projects to be flexible and enables us to ensure that musicians are suited to the opportunities they are offered.

Auditions will be held on the following dates:

Tuesday 21st May at Sage Gateshead
Wednesday 22nd May at Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester
Thursday 23rd May in London, Venue TBC

AUDITIONS REQUIREMENTS

Please prepare two contrasting pieces (pianist will be available if required). The audition will be followed by an informal interview.

The ensemble’s repertoire is usually commissioned or devised especially, or drawn from the notated classical music tradition, but we welcome applications from musicians of all genres and all instruments.

APPLICATION CRITERIA

Eligible musicians applying to join RNS Moves must be 18+, resident in the UK, and have mastered their instrument to a professional level.
