We are always on the lookout for new players

The band runs from late September/October to June each year. We occasionally have vacancies during the year, so feel free to get in touch with us at any time if you’re interested in joining the band.

Leeds Jazz Orchestra will be holding auditions on September 28th 2017 at Heart in Headingley from 7-9pm.
Over 18s only please and about Grade 6/7 standard or its equivalent. To book your place and let us know you’re coming, please email us on jazz@leedsjazzorchestra.com

Spaces for the following:
Drums
Piano
Trumpet
Trombone
Alto Saxophone

The audition process is very informal. It’s simply a question of sitting in with the band and playing with us. You may be asked to play a solo along with the rhythm section, but this is optional and you don’t have to play like Charlie Parker – just be willing to give it a go.


You should be over 18 and about Grade 6/7 (or have equivalent experience). You will need your instrument and a music stand. Piano and drum kit (no cymbals) are provided at our rehearsal venue which is

Headingley Arts Centre (HEART),
Bennett Lane
Leeds
LS6 3HN

Leeds Jazz Orchestra is a not-for-profit organisation so in order to cover expenses there is an annual membership fee of £150. For people joining after the start of the year the fee is charged pro rata.
