LUUMS CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
LUUMS Chamber Orchestra is an auditioned ensemble that uses its smaller size to its advantage to produce a precisely balanced and impressive sound. We’re around 30 strong, although sometimes expand for larger pieces. Last year’s pieces included Elgar’s Enigma Variations, Poulenc’s Sinfonietta, as well as an Electric Jazz Bass Concerto.
Despite our smaller size, we want to create a strong community of players who want to challenge themselves and get involved with LUUMS. People who are interested in not just playing the rep, but getting stuck in with socials and making friends. We’ve got a lot of socials lined up over the year (including a fair few post-rehearsal trips to Old Bar), so please do try and come along!
We also do a short tour each year within the UK, in the past we have been to Edinburgh and Cardiff which gives another wonderful opportunity to socialise as a group and explore different places.
We perform three concerts a year in Leeds with varying repertoire over the year, usually before Christmas, Easter and Summer respectively. There is also a concerto opportunity for those who want it. In past years we have sometimes split up into smaller chamber ensembles, such as a string orchestra and a 10-part wind ensemble meaning that some weeks you may not be needed, but we’ll want you back the following week!
Auditions for Chamber Orchestra 2019/2020 have now closed. Thank you to everyone who auditioned, and congratulations to this year's orchestra!
