String Ensemble – Rehearsal Starts 14th of February

Hope everyone has had a great summer, but now as the new academic year draws near so to our ensemble rehearsals. Last year was our best in terms of performances and growth. So we should endeavour to make this year even more great.

Rehearsals start Friday the 14th of February at 6 pm, in Building 57 Level 4 Room 1. 

New Members are always welcome and we accept all skill levels for those who play Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass. (No auditions)

Look forward to seeing you all for a great 2014.

RMIT String Ensemble – Rehearsals Start 14th June and other News

Hi to all,

Firstly, for those who are unaware, RMIT String Ensemble are still running rehearsals. We will return to rehearsals on Friday the 14th of June from 6 pm. The later time is to accommodate the Recorder Ensemble at 5 pm.

Secondly, We are preparing our music section for the end of year concert which will be awesome.

Thirdly, the group is looking for more members especially anyone who plays Violin and Viola, although any other instrument (cello & double bass) are still welcomed. So if you play a string instrument you are more than welcomed to join our ensemble.

We look forward to seeing you to play wonderful music.

Recorders are back!!

Hello there denizens of RMIT Music,

After a week of rest the Recorder Consort is back in action, and we shall be practicing a plethora of material, some for fun, some for camp (the event, not the aesthetic sensibility), and some for the Showcase Concert.

What shall be inflicted on the Consort? 

To find the answer you just have to come and see…

5pm Mondays (with the possibility to extend past the normal 6ish finish pending Concert Band inaction).

A Couple Of Rehearsal Cancellations

It is sad, but we must cancel our first scheduled Stage Band rehearsal (tonight, 20/2) as so few can attend.

Also, as Herr Conductor will be out of town, there will be no Concert Band rehearsal next Monday (25/2).

The Rehearsal Timetable has been updated to reflect these changes, so be sure to refer to it if you are unsure about when and where things are happening.

More Rehearsals Resuming

What’s this? More rehearsals?!

But of course! Next week our Concert and Stage bands will be resuming rehearsals.

Concert Band will resume on Monday the 18th at 6PM in 57.4.1. As always we’ll be heading to The Oxford Scholar afterwards to take advantage of their $12 parma and their plentiful drinks.

Stage Band will be resuming Wednesday the 18th at 6:30PM, also in 57.4.1. We don’t have any after rehearsal tradition/rituals as of yet, but there’s no reason we couldn’t start. Voice your suggestions at the rehearsal.

Be sure to practice your long tones and we’ll see you all there next week!
