2017 Course Summary

The 2017 Winter Music School will start with two intensive rehearsal days in which we will study the works through both full orchestra and sectional rehearsals. On our third day, we will travel to Port Douglas to rehearse and perform the concert programme in the Community Hall. On our final day, we will present the finalé concert, “A Night of Stars” in the Tanks Art Centre.



  It is expected that players will learn their music in advance of the course to enable our conductor  

to work with us on aspects of musical interpretation and performance.
