Orchestra

Mosman Symphony Orchestra rehearses on most Wednesday evenings during school terms. Most rehearsals are held at the Mosman Art Gallery and Community Centre, at the corner of Art Gallery Way and Myahgah Road, Mosman. We meet at 7:15pm for a 7.30pm start and finish at 10:00pm, with a break where hot drinks and chocolate biscuits (and cake) is supplied.

Rehearsal schedule

Please keep an eye on this link, as it will be updated when necessary, and the date changed!

2019 Dates

Our orchestral dates have been confirmed with the Art Gallery. Our tour to Mountain Ridge Estate (Yes, we have been invited back!)  has been postponed due to the state election. Dates have been updated on February 4 – please note there are NO Tuesday evening rehearsals! 😉

2019 Mosman Symphony Orchestra Dates revised March 21

The rehearsal on March 20 will be a run through of Program 2 plus the AGM.

Program 2. Handel, Britten, Tchaikovsky

I have started to put up bowings as this program will be a bit tricky! Please use these as they are intended: for your reference ONLY! When we distribute the hired parts, please ensure the bowings are as below in SOFT pencil only. It is not only illegal to print these off as a time saving measure, but it also lessens your knowledge of your part! Please take the time to check and mark up the hire parts as well, as they have been cleaned by the hire library and only have a few markings.

Lastly, the Handel Water Music is a selection of movements: all of suite 2, plus 3 movements from suite 1. We will be playing them in this order:

11.  OVERTURE

1. OVERTURE

2. ADAGIO E STACCATO

12. ALLA HORNPIPE

13. MINUET

4. ANDANTE

14. LENTEMENT
