Squawkestra membership form & payment details

Break time roster

Alternating between 3 groups:

  • Violins and violas 
  • Woodwinds (Flutes, Clarinets, Oboe & Bassoon) and Brass (Trombone, Trumpet, French Horn)
  • Cellos

A reminder that if you are on break duty you need to do the following:

  • Bring snacks to share. Could be a packet of biscuits or chips, a cake, bread and dips, some fresh fruit. Easily shareable food is best.
  • One person will need to get 1 litre of milk as their contribution. Please arrange in the previous rehearsal or get some from the supermarket across the road  when arriving.
  • Set up the tea and coffee, get out cups, turn on the urn at the start of rehearsal.
  • Help set up and pack up chairs
  • Wash the dishes, clean kitchen area and leave it sparkly for the next group to use.
  • Please contribute, it is sad to see when the same people help every time and others don’t.
