ORCHESTRA 2004 (article first published : 2004-07-10)

All musicians who play orchestral instruments are urged not to miss the Orchestra 2004 concert which will be held at N-Shed NPA Port of Durban at the Durban Harbour T-Jetty on August 1, 2004. Last year over 220 musicians participated in the third Orchestra concert - the event was a wonderful successful and lots of fun for all involved. The event is an annual highlight on Durbanís music calendar and aims to bring together musicians from all age and race groups in KZN for a massed orchestral concert performed under the skilled conducting baton of Richard Cock.

Anyone who can read and play music is encouraged to participate in the project which will provide a unique opportunity for musicians, young and old, to play as part of a massed orchestra. Players will receive music packs on registration and have to practise the pieces in preparation for the rehearsal which is held on the morning of the concert from 11h30 - the players get together for the first time on the day of the concert!

The concerts have done much to generate a renewed interest in amateur performing while supporting and creating awareness for the arts in KZN. All participants have to register to play and are required to pay a nominal entry fee of R20 pp to cover administration costs. However, bursaries covering the cost of entry fees for disadvantaged groups/musicians are available on request.

The National Ports Authority has generously sponsored the venue N-Shed. Sincere thanks also go to the KZN Arts & Culture Council and to Rand Merchant Bank for their Project Grants and to Regma for Printing.

Tickets R25 (R15 pensioners/students/children) available from 124 Davenport Road, Glenwood, or at the door on the day. Seating is unreserved.The audience will be welcomed by a performance by the Field Band Foundationís marching brass band and their colour guard at 14h30 followed by a performance by the Steel Drum Foundation. The main concert will run from 15h00 to 16h30.

Contact the organisers, the British Cultural & Heritage Association, for further details about registration and booking on 031-2026174 or email orchestra@global.co.za
