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!!!!
Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings from 6 - 7:30pm in the Campbell's Creek Community Hall in Cemetery Rd Campbell's Creek. Should you wish to get more information about Corker please go to the tab 'Contact Corker'. We will certainly make contact with you.
The year 2020
We look forward to resuming rehearsals on Mon. January 11th.
What a year!
However on Mon. Dec. 6th, before this year comes to a close, Corker will be casually gathering to play as many notes as we feel like (or not).
VENUE: The Castlemaine Botanical Gardens from 5.30-7.30, near the Rotunda.
We will be dusting off our instruments, and just having a BIG PLAY!
(brave listeners welcome)
