During the camp we will be reading from the Bärenreiter Urtext edition of the Beethoven Symphony No. 3. You are no longer required to bring your own sheet music.

As of Friday morning, the weather forecast for Ulverstone gives an 80% chance of rain on Friday, 60% on Saturday and 20% on Sunday. We recommend packing a raincoat.

Temperatures will range from 3°C to 12°C. Pack sheets, blankets, sleeping bags and hot water bottles accordingly.

2016 Winter Orchestra Workshop – Election Update

When we scheduled the 2016 Winter Orchestra Workshop, the first weekend in July looked like a good, quiet time of year to hold it. That weekend will no longer be so quiet, as the Saturday will be the day of the 2016 Federal Election. We have created a page of links to Australian Electoral Commission information on:

  • Postal voting,
  • Early voting at a polling place, and
  • Voting during the camp.

You may find it at Winter Orchestra Workshop – 2016 Federal Election.
