Music sheets

Ask your music teacher for help choosing witch position you should have inte the orchestra. Once we have received everyone’s wish for positions we make set up the orchestra. In order to create a good balance, we may have to ask some of you to play a different position than the one you chose.

In the woodwinds and the brass it may mean playing different positions on different pieces. In those cases, it may also be a possibility that you double your position with other participants.

You will be contacted in good time so that you know which positions to prepare for. If you want to see the music sheets before signing up, send an email to
