Along with the Winter Orchestra Workshop, the LYCO organises the annual Residential Summer String Camp, now in its 28th year. This will run from 14th January 2018 to 20th January 2018, and applications are now open.
To apply, start at the RSSC Application page.
The main work will be Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 in E♭ major (“Eroica”). The fee is $225, or $200 for LYCO members, with a $20 increase after 31st May 2017. The camp will run from the afternoon of 7th July 2017 (Friday) to 9th July 2017 (Sunday).
Other details and application forms may be found on the Winter Orchestra Workshop page.
Due to the Tasmanian term dates for 2017, we will be missing three consecutive Fridays. Once the second term of 2017 begins, rehearsals for all three orchestras will resume on the 5th of May.
For the complete list of rehearsal and concert dates, see the Rehearsals page.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rehearsals resume on the 17th of February 2017. Rehearsals remain at the City Baptist Church, 11 Frederick St, Launceston, unless otherwise stated. The rehearsals through the year, including updates, are listed on the Rehearsals page.
The 2017 Winter Orchestra Workshop will run from the 7th of July (Friday) to the 9th of July (Sunday).
The Galleries now include audio recordings from the 2016 End of Year Concert.
