A day of orchestral rehearsal and performance led by arranger and conductor, Richard Oswin, for senior primary, intermediate and secondary students who learn an instrument.
This is an ideal opportunity for students who practise mostly on their own to join other students and make music in one big ensemble. The technical difficulty of the music is suitable for students in their second or third year of practice and while it is an orchestra, there are kit, guitar, keyboard and bass parts too. Students can work on their parts with instrumental tutors to attend on the day, nearly prepared to play up to 6 pieces. Schools might achieve an ensemble of instruments who can play together but this is not essential.
The day begins with a massed rehearsal and sectionals, and finishes with a concert of the 6 pieces. Repertoire ranges from the Baroque to modern pop/rock music.
Please be in touch with your questions. We’d love to increase the range of schools with students participating in this event. It’s a fine tuned machine now, ready to welcome new teachers and student musicians. Click here to register.
