Rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings during school terms. Additional rehearsals for winds/strings are held as necessary. Our usual venue is the Salvation Army Hall, cnr. Mt. Alexander Road and Buckley Streets, Essendon.

Under Covid-19 restrictions for orchestras, we are splitting rehearsals into two halves, based on rehearsing different pieces with different players.

7.15 pm – Arrived and set up ready to play for first half
8.25-8.35 pm – Break and changeover
9.45 pm – Second half concludes, including Covid-19 clean-up

Players are expected to attend all rehearsals and are asked to practice between rehearsals.

AMEB Grade 4-5 or equivalent at least. Good sight reading ability assumed.

We are currently recruiting for a trombonist, bass players, a bassoonist, and violins.

New players please note that you should bring your own music stand to rehearsals, and use your own pencil and copy of the music.
