Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Apprenticeship Scheme
The RSNO/RCS Apprenticeship scheme bridges the transition between conservatoire student performance and professional experience, for young musicians showing promise as orchestral musicians.
Each year students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland are invited to audition for the apprenticeship scheme in the same way that the RSNO would execute auditions for real vacancies within the Orchestra, with candidates being set challenging solo and orchestral repertoire as well as being presented with sight-reading in the audition.
All candidates are provided with panel reports regarding their audition with suggestions of ways to improve audition technique and etiquette. Successful students are then invited to rehearse with the RSNO for three different and exciting projects throughout the Season, as well as receiving advice and mentoring from RSNO musicians.
