Ulster Orchestra Professional Experience Scheme (PES) in partnership with the Ulster Youth Orchestra

A mentoring project for music students normally resident in Northern Ireland.

Overview

PES Scheme is a mentoring project for music students normally resident in Northern Ireland. 7 emerging professional musicians are selected annually to receive mentoring from Ulster Orchestra members and, where appropriate, to perform in season concerts.

Three times during the academic year, successful applicants will come to Belfast to join with the orchestra in rehearsals, and where appropriate, be invited to play in concerts. Travel to Belfast from the student’s usual place of study and any local travel costs will be paid for by the orchestra.

PES students receive support and feedback from UO members, develop skills in auditioning, orchestral section playing, and also observe and participate in one of the UO’s Learning and Community Engagement projects.

Eligible musicians are selected by means of competitive audition.
