Bath Philharmonia Not Applicable Closing date 10 February 2023
Interested in becoming a trustee of an award-winning arts organisation transforming the lives of young people and developing a new generation of audiences across Bath and the South West? Come and join the Bath Phil Family!

Bath Philharmonia is a professional orchestra based in Bath and touring South West England. We reach over 12,000 people each year through a combination of concerts and projects in communities, with a specialism in working with young carers to help them build personal confidence and supportive relationships through making and performing their own music. Celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2025 and winner of “Arts Organisation of the Year” at the Creative Bath Awards 2022, the orchestra has successfully navigated the last few years and is now on an exciting journey.

Our vision is to make orchestral music part of life for many people – and you’re invited to help us achieve this. If you too believe in the power of music, we’d love to hearfrom you. You’ll be joining a dynamic team to support the further development of the orchestra and enable yet more impactful programmes with young carers, primary and secondary schools, disadvantaged young people and support for music leaders.

As a new trustee, you will be welcomed by the Board in to this exciting and fulfilling voluntary role and be encouraged to contribute ideas and decisions, and sparing a few hours each month. We meet every two months in Bath (with the option to join remotely) to review progress against our strategy, current activities, new initiatives as well as our financial health and development plans. Occasionally, individual trustees attend rehearsals, workshops and meet within thematic sub-groups and we ask that trustees commit to attending meetings and occasional concerts and events.

Please get in touch for a confidential chat or download our application pack for further details. Thanks for your interest in this exciting opportuity and we look forward to hearing from you.
