Malaga's Antonio Banderas is on the look out for musicians to form his own orchestra – but if you want to apply don't hang around – the closing date to take part in the selection tests is 17 January.
Banderas wants to create a resident orchestra at his Teatro del Soho CaixaBank in Malaga and is looking for musicians who play violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, flute / piccolo, oboe, oboe / horn, clarinet, clarinet / bass clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, horn, trumpet, trombone, bass trombone / tuba, percussion (required drums), harp and piano.
Applications to take part in the selection tests can be sent until 17 January. All the information, with the rules and the registration link can be found on the theatre’s website.
The auditions will take place from 25 to 27 January with a first exercise consisting of the interpretation of a work by Mozart, except for saxophonists and percussionists, who will play a piece of their choice.
It will not be a conventional training according to the website: "In contrast to traditional classical symphony orchestras, we propose the fun and enjoyment of making music with an eclectic and vibrant repertoire, ranging from the classical works best known to the general public to Broadway shows, film music, or the Beatles."
