How to join

We are always happy to welcome new members to both Senior and Junior Orchestras.

Membership of the orchestra is open. All you need is an orchestral instrument and to be taking formal lessons in this instrument. Contact us via email julianstownyouthorchestra@gmail.com or via telephone on 086 0337515 and we will talk you through the process. We have two orchestras and depending on ability and age you will be allocated a place in one of them. Junior orchestra is mainly for primary school going children and secondary school going children (minimum grade 3) are members of senior orchestra. Placements are at the sole discretion of the conductor and his decision is final.
