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

Deadline for applications: 9am on Monday 6th May 2019
Our next project is in early September 2019, with further projects taking place in 2020 and beyond.
