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!

  • Our next performance will be on Saturday, 23 Feb 2019 in the late afternoon at our new outdoor stage in the grounds of the CWA Hall Stanwell Park.
  • Initial rehearsals will be  24 Nov / 01 Dec and 8 Dec at 15 Gardiner Place Helensburgh from 2pm to 4pm  other rehearsal schedules over the Christmas and New Year period can be agreed by the orchestra members
