SPAT Music

Your invitation to join the orchestra!

The Northern Illawarra needs a community orchestra, so SPAT is forming one!

We are now looking for wind, percussion and string musicians.

The aim of this group is to get together for a few rehearsals and then perform at a semi-annual outdoor evening of music, a relaxed family event where the audience can sit on picnic blankets, eat and enjoy some lovely instrumental music.

The evening will also allow time for a few featured performers to play. So dust off that old tuba or flute and come have a play!

  • Performance and rehearsal venue will be the CWA Hall and grounds Stanwell Park.
  • Rehearsals will be Monday nights from 7-9pm at the CWA Hall: 28 May, 11 June, 25 June, 6 August, 20 August, 3 September, 17 September.

For any detailed music information please contact our Music Director Alison Garvie or 0408 089 262.
