All the above players are members of the Philharmonia Orchestra. Membership is awarded via an intensive audition and trial period which can last many months, ensuring the Philharmonia secures the very finest musicians. You may notice that there are particular instruments not included on the current members’ list: this may be because this post is vacant and open to trialists. Full details on Orchestra Vacancies can be found here.
The Philharmonia Orchestra’s Principal Timpani’s Chair is endowed by an anonymous donor in memory of Giuseppe and Barbara Modiano
