We were lucky to have Rubicon Photography at our concert on 24th November 2023. As a former French Horn player, Andrew knows how to capture the essence of a live musical performance. Please enjoy these photos from Andrew on our Gallery page.
What a great ending to our 2023 concert season!
Thank you so much to everyone involved in last night’s performance ~ our conductor Joannes Roose, musicians, volunteers and a supportive audience. And of course Grieg, Elgar and Brahms for their beautiful music. We noticed a few people bopping along to “In the Hall of the Mountain King” – it’s hard not to!
Special thanks to our event photographer (and former musician) Andrew Bottomley of Rubicon Photography. We’ll share Andrew’s photos with you soon.
Thank you again for your support.
The year is flying by and we’re preparing for our last concert of the year, to be held on Friday, 24 November 2023 at 8pm, MLC in Kew.
We will be performing this beautiful music:
* Edvard Grieg ~ Peer Gynt Suite No. 1
* Edward Elgar ~ Serenade for Strings
* Johannes Brahms ~ Symphony No. 2 in D major
Tickets are available here or at the door (cash only).
We hope you can join us!
We are a friendly community orchestra of all ages and backgrounds, always looking for new players. We strive to perform high quality music while supporting the Royal Children’s Hospital.
We don’t hold auditions, but for players to feel comfortable in their ability to perform our repertoire we suggest a standard of Grade 7 AMEB (or equivalent) with orchestral experience and commitment.
Rehearsals are on Wednesday nights, 7:45pm – 10pm at Flemington Primary School. Concerts are on Friday evenings at MLC in Kew.
Our next concert is on Friday 8 September. Rehearsal dates are August 2, 9, 16, 23, 30; September 6.
Interested? We’d love to hear from you! Email us at: email@example.com
Thank you everyone for making our concert on 16th June such a successful and enjoyable evening.
Many of you know that we are an Auxiliary of The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne and we raise funds for the Hospital’s Gatehouse Centre, a Centre Against Sexual Assault.
Your generosity over the last year has allowed us to recently donate $1,000 to Gatehouse. Thank you so much.
This will help Gatehouse continue supporting young people and their families affected by sexual abuse. Gatehouse provides short and long-term assessment, intervention, therapy and advocacy services. It also offers education and training to the police, legal and community services, professionals and agencies.
Thank you for supporting this very worthy cause.
