None of the LYCO Orchestras will be rehearsing on Friday, the 22nd of September 2017. This affects the Piccolo Strings, Intermezzo Strings and Launceston Symphony Orchestra.
However, there will still be rehearsals for all three orchestras on the following Friday, the 29th of September, the day that the school holidays begin.
There will be no rehearsals for the two weeks after this due to the holidays, before rehearsals resume on Friday, the 20th of October 2017.
For the complete list of rehearsal and concert dates for the year, see the Rehearsals page.
There will be no rehearsals at the City Baptist Church on the 7th of July 2017. Musicians who registered for the Winter Orchestra Workshop should assemble the items listed in the WOW Information Sheets and go to Camp Clayton. If that doesn’t apply to you, your school holidays begin a few hours early.
The next rehearsal of the Piccolo Strings, Intermezzo Strings and Launceston Symphony Orchestra will be on the first Friday of term 3: the 28th of July 2017. For other rehearsal dates, see the Rehearsals page.
Recordings from the mid year concert are also now online. To hear them, visit the 2017 Mid Year Concert page in the Galleries.

After many years as LYCO treasurer and camps administrator, Virginia de Groot is retiring from the LYCO Committee.
The LYCO and RSSC boards wish to thank Virginia for her huge contribution over the years. With Virginia’s retirement from these positions there will be changes to the registration process. We hope to make the transition as simple as possible.
Membership and camp enquiries should now be sent to email@example.com.
