How to join
If you are interested in joining the orchestra, please contact us first to enquire whether there is a vacancy.

At present the orchestra has vacancies for strings, trombones and horns. However, as membership changes from time to time, please do contact the Secretary if you are interested.


The orchestra rehearses on Sunday afternoons from 2.15pm until 4.45pm during the months of September to April. The venue is Paisley North Church, Abercorn St, Paisley PA3 4AB, near the town centre and easily accessible from both the M8 motorway and Paisley Gilmour St station.

Paisley Sinfonia is always pleased to welcome new members. There is no formal audition but you will be asked to play in the section for a few weeks then a decision on membership will be taken in conjunction with the section leader.

Previous experience of orchestral playing is helpful. We suggest that players, particularly string players, need to be of at least ABRSM Grade 6 standard to get the most enjoyment from rehearsing some difficult works.

For the current annual subscription, please contact the Secretary on There is a significantly reduced fee for students and there are no additional costs (eg for music, tutoring etc).
