Dulwich Symphony Orchestra

Joining DSO

DSO welcomes enquiries from potential new members. There are always opportunities for violins, violas and double basses and frequently for cellos. We currently have a vacancy for a second horn and bass trombone.

We are always interested to hear from musicians who would like to be on our list of deps and extras.


There is no formal audition process for string players. The level is about grade 8, but it's a matter of arranging to come along and see how you get on. There are more involved processes for wind and brass players. In ether case, please contact usby emaili at info@dulwichsymphonyorchestra.org.uk.

Subscriptions are £70 per term (£35 concessions). Under normal circumstances, there are ten weekly rehearsals per term and three concerts per year, on Tuesdays 7.30pm - 9.30pm. 

Rehearsals in the summer term 2021 are held in St Paul's Church Hall, Herne Hill, London SE24 9LY.

From Autumn 2021, we will return to reahrsing in the Holst Hall, James Allen's Girls' School, 144 E Dulwich Grove, London SE22 8TE.
