Join Us

If you’d like to join us, please tell us something about yourself via the Introduction Form (via our user management platform VereinOnline). Someone in charge of your desired ensemble will get back to you.

Please check your email address carefully before submitting the form. There have been cases, where we couldn’t reach out to people. In case you don’t hear from us, feel free to use the Introduction Form again.

You can also come along to a rehearsal to see how we work.  All rehearsal dates, times, and locations (with maps) are updated in the ESME Full Calendar – do check this before turning up, as sometimes details change. Due to Covid-19, please contact us before coming to any rehearsals.

We are presently actively looking for the following instruments/voices:
Big Band: lead trumpet (comfortable in jazz improvisation), bass trombone, percussion
Orchestra: we have spaces in all strings, bassoon, trumpets, trombones, tuba, percussion.

Please note that our choir is bursting at the seams and we have no space for further members at the moment. If you would like us to put you on our waiting list, feel free to still fill out the introduction form above.

Where the Big Band tends to play all year round, the singers and the orchestra take breaks over Summer and Winter (August/January), so please be patient should we not get back to you straight away in these periods!

For enquiries which are not related to joining, please send us an email at
