WELCOME TO THE CORKER ORCHESTRA!
The Corker Orchestra was formed by James Rigby in 2011 (see more in A History of Corker Orchestra) as a community orchestra to empower musicians of all skill levels and with any instrument to experience the joy of making music with one another. Anybody can join Corker no matter how rudimentary their skills but ukulele and guitar players would benefit from knowing basic chords. For other instrument players, it is advisable to know how to read music because we read from notated music! The music we play is not particularly difficult and includes mostly popular tunes from films, musicals, even jazz and Latin themes. Occasionally we even play some arrangements of classical music!!!!
Well, happy New Year to all.
Our year is beginning on Tuesday Feb.6th
We have an exciting programme ahead.
(We may even be ready for another classical tune, amongst the jazz/latin...)
By the way, our concert at the end of 2023, in the Newstead Community Centre was absolutely fabulous. Castlemaine's Mainesong Choir and Brazazul Brazilian choir joined us with their songs and also some combined Brazilian songs. Kavisha Mazzella MC'd for us and we had a very joyous, true community-style concert and supper.
