ORCHESTRA 2005 (article first published : 2005-06-17)

All musicians who play orchestral instruments are urged not to miss the Orchestra 2005 concert which will be held at N-Shed NPA Port of Durban at the Durban Harbour T-Jetty on August 7.

Last year, over 220 musicians participated in the fourth Orchestra and the event was a wonderful success and lots of fun for all those involved. The concert is an annual highlight on Durbanís music calendar and aims to bring together musicians from all age 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, ie 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 fee of R20 per person to cover administration costs. However, bursaries covering the cost of entry fees for disadvantaged groups/musicians are available on request.

Sincere thanks also go to the KZN Arts & Culture Council and to Rand Merchant Bank for their project Grants and to Regma for Printing.

The audience will be welcomed by a performance by the Field Band Foundationís marching brass band and their dancing girls at 14h30 followed by a performance by the Steel Drum Foundation. The main concert will run from 15h00 to 16h30.

Tickets R25 (R15 pensioners/students/children) are available from 124 Davenport Road, Glenwood or from the door on the day. Please note that seating is unreserved.

Further details about registration and booking from the organisers, the British Cultural & Heritage Association, on 031 202 6174, fax 031 202 6228 or e-mail orchestra@global.co.za
