This Friday (13th), the Durham University Classical Ensemble will be holding auditions in order to appoint a conductor for the next academic year. DUCE is a chamber orchestra, focusing on the performance of works from the Baroque, Classical and early Romantic eras. We therefore require a conductor who is both passionate and able to facilitate a relaxed and inclusive rehearsal style (in which all members are welcome to make an active contribution towards the final interpretation). The orchestra gives three concerts each year in Durham, in addition to a tour during Easter term.


Auditions will consist of a 15m rehearsal with the orchestra, followed by questions.
