WURM – Wellington Ukulele, Recorder and Marimba Festival
$60 MENZA members, $90 incl. membership for non-MENZA members
Maungaraki School, Dowse Drive, Maungaraki, Lower Hutt
The WURM festival is intended for senior primary and intermediate students but older and younger students can also join in. This festival is in its fourth year so the momentum is mounting. We would love to welcome new schools to these and can assist in preparations so please be in touch.
WURM is a friendly music festival for ukulele, recorder and marimba players at senior primary and intermediate levels. Music is shared prior to the event for students and teachers to practise and prepare. There are 4-5 pieces to learn though there is no expectation of 100% readiness by anyone. On the day, we workshop together and in sections to present a final concert of instrumental and massed items. Supported by Shane McAlister of The Ukulele Institute and experienced local music teachers, this event runs like a dream and is a pleasure every year.
Thursday 29 June 9:15am – 2:45pm
WOF – Wellington Orchestra Festival
$80 MENZA members, $100 incl. membership for non-MENZA members
St Oran’s College, 550 High Street, Boulcott, Lower Hutt
WOF is our opportunity to gather all of those students who learn an orchestral instrument together to realise and experience the wonders of playing in a full orchestra. Richard Oswin, Christchurch, arranges a pleasing repertoire of music for us every year, and is there to guide us through preparations and performances on the day. Again, music (6 pieces) is shared with teachers and students well before the event. There are options and various levels provided for some parts (eg. Violin 1, Violin 2, Violin 3 and Violin 4!!). School groups might practise together but it is also envisioned that students will work on their parts with instrumental tutors in their lessons.
As with WURM, the WOF festival is intended for senior primary and intermediate students but older and younger students can also join in. We would love to welcome new schools to these and can assist in preparations so please be in touch.
