Vacancies for Volunteer Trustees

We are currently seeking volunteer members to join our Board of Trustees.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone to help support us to inspire a love of orchestral music for everyone.

Bath Philharmonia is one of the most exciting orchestras to have emerged in the UK over the last 20 years. Our vision is make high quality orchestral music accessible to our communities in the South West. We do this by programming a diverse range of concerts and events that reflect our 21st century demands and needs. In addition to concert performances, Bath Philharmonia’s Creative Learning Team creates original music with extraordinary people. Our creative composition workshops in schools and festivals enable pupils who may not have had the opportunity to play an instrument before to make and perform their own music inspired by core orchestral repertoire. Further, we enable young people who are often excluded from music-making activities to create and perform new music that reflects on their own experience.

We seek new trustees to help us help us take forward our ambitions and artistic aspirations.

To ensure a balanced skill set at board level, we are currently seeking candidates with either marketing & PR experience, audience development experience or fundraising & development experience. All candidates should enjoy orchestral music.

We want our board to be inclusive and representative of our audience and our artists, both currently and who we want to attract in the future. We welcome and include all people irrespective of age, gender or gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, medical or other need.

The Board meet four times a year, as well as supporting the administrative team throughout the year. All trustees are appointed initially for a term of three years.
