Thank you so much to those who were able to play in the Australia Day celebrations last Thursday! We received several positive comments about the performance, and the most important thing, we all enjoyed ourselves and had a good time.

We will have our first meeting of the term this Thursday (2'nd February) at 4:00pm at the Community Church. However, this will not be a rehearsal as such; instead we plan to have an open discussion about several different things such as the way the Ensemble is run, short and long-term plans for the group, and how these things affect you as an individual member of the group. As this is a meeting, not a rehearsal, you won't need to bring your instruments, music, or stands, but please feel free to bring along your parents or anyone else who may be interested to join in the discussion.

Our first actual rehearsal of the year will be on Thursday 16'th February, usual place and time. As the beginning of a new year, now is the perfect time to invite new musicians to come along and join us, so please spread the word! One of our main aims of this year is to build up the size of our orchestra, so the more people you can bring along the better!

Please keep May 26 & 27 free in your diaries as these are the performance dates for the Gilbert and Sullivan Extravaganza.

Thank you for your involvement in this group. Looking forward to sharing another year of making music together!
