Concertmaster Auditions


The position of Concertmaster to EUYO is one of the most significant appointments we make each year. Every year we are searching for not only a violinist of the very highest calibre, but also a person who commands respect, and who has a generous but natural authority. It is hoped that current members of the Orchestra will aspire to this important position. In 2018 we also welcomed applications for the 2019 Orchestra specifically for the position of Concertmaster from current members, recent alumni and from others who had not yet played with us.

For the 2020 Orchestra we are delighted to announce that we have reappointed Paula Sanz Alasa, our Summer 2019 concertmaster, for the entire 2020 season.  


Anybody interested in being considered in future years will need to prepare not only an important concerto from the romantic era onwards, but also significant solos from the orchestral canon.

The deadline to apply for the 2021 Orchestra as Concertmaster will be 10 November 2020

The deadline to submit audition videos for the 2021 Orchestra as Concertmaster will be 10 December 2020
