Vacancies – Come & be a part of Ady for 2023

2022 Schubert Symphony 9

At Ady, we believe in creating experiences that are innovative, fresh, alive, & meaningful – for listeners & players alike. We’re a project-based ensemble, with members with backgrounds as professional musicians, graduates, tertiary music students, and talented community players. Since since 2011 we’ve produced memorable performances that have included well-known classical works, along with inspiring collaborations with local & interstate composers. Early in 2021, the ensemble’s recording of Bonshek’s “Dreams of the Earth” was released commercially, resulting in the work being awarded the “Contemporary Classical” work at the 2022 Queensland Music Awards, & in 2022 the ensemble released its recording of Brahms’ 2nd Symphony.

Here at Ady, we are keen to develop the performance levels & opportunities of the ensemble & its members, & of course that can’t happen without having some wonderful people involved. Our core value is Fun, & in achieving a warm, collegial, feel the ensemble has achieved high levels of performance – rewarding for both our players & audiences alike. We are excited to announce that we are currently in the middle of preparations for two projects for 2023, & are looking for new members to join us. We have vacancies for both performers & within our wonderful admin people. Please note that these are fun projects, not paid projects, which have a focus on the professional development of our members, & as part of the Ady experience we provide Professional Development & ensemble subject hours for teachers & tertiary students. We expect to finalise all positions by the 19th of February [UPDATE: time extended for trumpets & strings!].
