Youth & Community Orchestral Workshop
It’s back! Following the success of our inaugural YCOW event in September last year, we are pleased to announce YCOW22 to be held over the weekend 9 & 10 July 2022.
The two-day intensive program of sectional and orchestral rehearsals alongside the professional artists of the Ipswich City Symphony culminates in a public concert on the Sunday evening (see below for a full itinerary).
YCOW22 is open to young people aged between 12 & 21years and community musicians of all ages learning or playing orchestral instruments and offers the unique opportunity to experience performing in a full orchestral setting.
Eligible instruments are: Flute, Piccolo, Oboe, Cor Anglais, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, French Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Bass Trombone, Tuba, Timpani, Percussion (including mallets but not drum kit), Harp, Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass.
Registrations open Friday 6 May and close Friday 3 June.
Cost of $80 per participant covers all music & workshops with our professional players and light morning & afternoon teas both days.
Participants need to provide their instrument, lunch for both days and black attire for the concert performance.
Ipswich City Orchestras is a volunteer, not-for-profit organisation, and we hope participants and their families will join us on the Saturday evening for a fundraising sausage sizzle and opportunity to socialise with other like-minded musicians and families.
The Workshops and Public Performance will be held in the Performing Arts Precinct of West Moreton Anglican College, 8 Keswick Road, Karrabin 4306.
*Musically advanced (equivalent AMEB Grade 4 or above) children aged 10 and 11 years may be considered, please contact us at email@example.com or 0421 444 730 during business hours.
