Which ensemble is the right one for me?
The Dorkestra – for intermediate adult string and woodwind players. We are currently at full capacity for flutes, but looking for more violinists. We meet every Thursday night, 7.30pm-9.30 pm all year round at the North Fremantle Bowling Club, 8 Thompson Rd, North Fremantle (off Stirling Highway). The bar is open!
The Awkwardstra – for adult string and woodwind players who would like to work their way towards being intermediate! We are always in need of more cellists and 1st violinists. We meet on Wednesday nights, 7.30pm-9.30 pm all year round at the Victoria Park Community and Family Centre, cnr Kent and Gloucester Streets, East Victoria Park.
String Beans – for primary school players with some experience. We meet on Thursdays 4.00pm – 5.30 pm at the North Fremantle Bowling Club, 8 Thompson Rd, North Fremantle (off Stirling Highway).
As we are a voluntary, not for profit organisation, we only charge for the time and skills of our teachers, tutors and conductors, our venue hire and insurance. Orchestra fees are paid by the semester (Jan – June and July – Dec). Each adult ensemble plays all year round but the youth ensemble break during school holidays. A $5 annual fee covers your annual membership and insurance in addition to your semester fees below. You will be invoiced at the beginning of each semester (twice a year) and can pay by bank transfer.
Dorkestra – $300 per semester
Awkwardstra – $300 per semester
String Beans – $320 per semester
Dorks and Awks: if other commitments mean that you can’t come regularly, talk to your ensemble coordinator and we’ll work something out.
Which ensemble is the right one for me? We can help you decide! Joining The Instrumentals is so easy (and no auditions!). To join one of the adult ensembles, you are required to be able to sight read and play either a string or woodwind instrument and for the youth ensemble we ask that you are taking regular music lessons and have learnt your instrument for a year. Email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be directed to one of the ensemble coordinators.
