Band & Orchestra Enrolment

Band & Orchestra Enrolment for 2021

Our instrumental ensembles are looking for interested students to join the program in 2021. The ensembles include a Senior Band, Stage Band, Chamber Orchestra, Concert Band, Symphony Orchestra, Training Band and Training Orchestra.

Students from Years 3-6 can participate in any of these groups, which require varying levels of musical ability. The Chamber Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra, Senior Band, Stage Band and Concert Band assume prior musical training of one year or more on an instrument. Training Band and Training Orchestra require no prior musical knowledge or training as we learn skills together throughout the year.

For Year 2 students only: On Wednesday 4 November 2020, our band and orchestra conductors as well as some of our senior students will be demonstrating all the instruments played in the ensembles. This will take place at 9:20am in the school hall. At the end of the demonstration all Year 2 students will be given a note to take home, giving all the details concerning the ensembles.

If you are currently in an ensemble you do not need to re-apply. Your conductor will talk to you soon about auditions and how to progress to the next ensemble.

All students who would like to apply to join the Band & Orchestra Program in 2021 should fill in the Band and Orchestra Enrolment for 2021 form.

When filling out the form please give as much information as possible about your child's music background - this will help us to make a decision regarding instrument and ensemble.

Applications made after 4 February 2021 will be placed on a waiting list and contacted if a place in the program is available.
