Which ensemble is the right one for me?

We can help you decide! Joining The Instrumentals is easy (no auditions!) and we are always welcoming of new players. 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: info@communityorchestras.org.au and you will be directed to one of the ensemble coordinators.

The Dorkestra – for intermediate and advanced 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-9.30pm all year round at the North Fremantle Community Centre Hall, 2 Thompson Road, North Fremantle (off Stirling Highway).



The Awkwardstra – for intermediate adult string and woodwind players. We are always in need of more cellists, woodwind and violinists. We meet Wednesday nights, 7.00pm-9.00pm 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 – 5.30pm at the North Fremantle Community Hall, 2 Thompson Road, North Fremantle (off Stirling Highway).



Fees

To support the Orchestra’s development, fees apply. As we are a voluntary, not for profit organisation, we only charge for the time and skills of our musical director,  tutors, venue hire and insurance. Orchestra fees are paid by the semester (Jan – June and July – Dec). You will be invoiced at the beginning of each semester. Dorks and Awks: if other commitments mean that you can’t come regularly, please talk to your ensemble coordinator.
