In WACO we strive to create the best music possible as we fulfil our mission, changing lives through music. To ensure our ensembles are of a high standard and to give everyone a fair opportunity, all potential members must audition; all our continuing members re-audition annually.
For information on our audition process, please see the information below. We encourage you to read through these documents before applying for any of our ensembles. Please feel free to contact us if you have any queries regarding membership or the audition process.
Please select the appropriate application form(s).

“Playing with WACO is an amazing part of my musical journey. To have met so many likeminded people who love music as much as I do is simply mind-blowing. And to be able to share it and help others at the same time is something really truly special.”
