2018 Ensemble Fees

Dear Ensemble Members

We are grateful to you for your commitment to our ensembles and congratulate you for your recent performances. We are delighted by the way they have flourished this year.

Next year it will become necessary to increase the fee on each of our ensembles. We have avoided increasing them for nearly 10 years now, but to ensure we are running them as efficiently as possible, the ORC Board have requested we increase them slightly in 2018.

What we would like to offer you, is the opportunity to join two ensembles for the REDUCED rate of only $150 per term or join three or more ensembles for only $180. This means you can join as many as you like and pay no more than $180 per term.

Please find our new rates below for 2018.

Thank you for your valued support and we look forward to enriching opportunities to Inspire Create and Enjoy in 2018.

Each year young musicians audition for a chance to be a soloist at our annual Concerto Concert. This year’s winners are Molly Straney, Sophie McKay and Rebekah Rae. These students and the Orange Youth Orchestra prepare all year for this concert, it a pinnacle of their work.
