Pit Perfect

Glyndebourne’s development scheme for young professional instrumentalists

The Glyndebourne Pit Perfect scheme offers postgraduate instrumentalists the opportunity for paid engagement with the Tour Orchestra for a concentrated period during the Tour from late September until early December.

Successful applicants will join the orchestra for at least one of its three autumn productions.

Participants will be mentored by a member of the orchestra and receive further opportunities including: one to one lessons, the chance to sit in on extra rehearsals and to participate in seminars on life in the music profession.

No other scheme in the country offers newly graduated players real-world professional work experience over a concentrated three-month period by putting them straight in at the deep end – the fastest way to learn.
