Corker's News Page
Here's where you'll find out anything new and interesting about the Corker Orchestra such as rehearsals and forthcoming performances.
If you would like to join us please do, we would love to welcome you. CO is held at the south Castlemaine Primary school on the corner of Urquhart and Mostyn Sts. We start at 6pm each Monday and go until 7.30 with a fine supper in between. We usually have all school holidays as a break.
Our first gig for 2018 was at Wesley Hill market on 28th April. The weather was kind with few problems of music blowing away or being rained on. The 29 Orchestra members who attended thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the feedback from the audience was very positive. So, thank you to the members of the Orchestra who were able to make it.
The second lovely gig was at the Castlemaine Artists' Market on 2nd September 2018. Again the weather was kind and although we had a couple of people unable to make it, again the response from the audience was very positive, so much so that we had inquiries from people wanting to join us!
We are now in term 4 and are preparing for our annual 'Big Gig' at the beautiful Castlemaine Town Hall. This is the culmination of all our hard work during the year and is a wonderful event which has been enjoyed by all and sundry in the past. We are lucky to have our guest choir 'MaineSong' joining us again. This event is on 28th October and starts at 4.00pm and finishes at 6.30 so it is not a late night for the little ones who we encourage to come. The admission fee is $6 for 18 and over and children are free. Admission covers rich entertainment and a lovely supper.
