We are not currently recruiting for new members but here is some information on our musician callouts and how to stay in touch.

A procession of musicians in a suburban street setting. Front centre a young white male plays trombone, another - a wheelchair users - plays drums mounted afront his wheelchair, a white female on bass drum, a white male on saxaphone. They are casually dressed.

We are lucky to receive regular emails from some very gifted musicians and artists enquiring about our recruitment process. Sadly we do not have the resource to consider and respond to each one individually, instead, we ask that you consider applying to join Paraorchestra via one of our Musician Callouts.

Our Musician Callout is a structured application process, inviting musicians, singers, composers and music makers who identify as disabled, D/deaf or neurodiverse to get in touch with a written or video application and examples of their work. These applications are then reviewed by our panel and a number are shortlisted for an informal chat with our Artistic team. Here is an example of our callout for 2021

Our musician callouts are heavily promoted via our website and social channels, but you can sign up to be notified of our next call out by completing this form here

If you would like to keep up to date on our projects and touring work you can sign up to our mailing list here.
