We love singing good music together for our own enjoyment and the enjoyment of others. We welcome singers aged 18 to 80+. We meet for practice on Monday evenings at 7.00 pm in the McNaught Hall of the Bundaberg Uniting Church, 24 Barolin Street, Bundaberg. AND ....... We need more men!! Particularly tenors. Now is the time to come along and sing along. You know you want to.
Orpheans, Friends and Supporters! Lend me your ears!
Christmas and New Year have come and gone. The rains are upon us in our sub-tropical paradise. Soon it will be Australia Day, the kids will all go back to school (thank goodness) and we all get down to the business of 2015. The Orpheus Committee got going this week. Alison and Yvonne had already been at work - Alison selecting music for our first concert this year, and Yvonne locating and preparing it for us. It will be in March again, on Sunday 22nd, and again at Woodgate - they liked it so much last year, and were such an appreciative audience, it seems a good idea to go back.
And it will be a Celtic Ceilidh.
Hoot! Mon, - brush off your kilts! Puff up your pipes! Lace up your leggings! For a preview of some of the selections, check the "What we are working on" widget on the right hand side bar. AND ALSO: to brush up on some of your celtic dancing moves, check out the Scottish and Irish Dancing videos. Very good for cardiac fitness, to be sure.
First practice - Monday 2nd February, 6.45 for 7.00pm at the Uniting Church Hall, Barolin Street
Next Thursday December 18 will be the last lunchtime concert for this year beginning as usual at 1pm at Christ Church, Corner of Woongarra and Maryborough Streets.
This concert will be a special one for our Director Barry Davis as he will be playing with 2 of his Oboe students, Aichlinn Huang Ryan and Bridie Argent, along with guest oboist Talitha Best who has previously performed as soloist in the main Sinfonietta Friday night series.
In addition the slightly longer programme will feature the world Premiere of a Trio for 2 oboes and English horn by Aaron Alfred S.C. Lee dedicated to Barry.
The programme will finish with Christmas carols arranged for 3 Oboes and English horn.
We hope as many of you as possible can come along and be thrilled by this amazing sound and combination of instruments! Bring your friends who have never been to our concerts!
