New members are welcome to join throughout the year. Membership is open to orchestral instruments only. Please contact or contact Katrina on 0415 107 190 for more information. All orchestra members pay an annual membership fee and we accept new members at all times of the year. Rehearsals are fun and relaxed. There are no auditions to join. A bunch of good folks attend each rehearsal and at break times we all enjoy a cuppa, a natter and great home made cakes. New members are welcome to join in on any rehearsal and join on the night. BYO your own music stand.

We hope to see you soon. To join up, send us an email or give us a call. We are currently updating our membership form and will be in touch in Jan 2016.
