Spring in the Step at Squawkestra
Thanks to all the Squawkestra players who came out of hibernation or back from their winter holidays to play last rehearsal. What a great complement of players – I didn’t count the violins (there were lots!), eight cellos, two flutes and two trumpets. We were so pleased to see so many players last night, both old and new friends.
Our seating arrangement is allowing us to play whilst also listening to someone else – always a good thing in an ensemble. Playing rounds is also a great way of learning to work together as we zumba-ed and tumba-ed our way around the arrangements. Our new concert program for November will feature collaborations with contemporary Melbourne composers, musicians and other orchestras. We hope you all continue to be part of the journey.
