At the Winter Orchestra Workshop, string, brass and woodwind musicians from across Tasmania gather for a weekend to play a major work for symphony orchestra. These camps grew out of the the shorter Winter Workshops, also organised by the Launceston Youth and Community Orchestra.
The 2017 Winter Orchestra Workshop will run from the evening of Friday, 7th July 2017 to Sunday, 9th July 2017.
Conductor – Willem van der Vis
Willem Van der Vis gained a BSc (Hons) in physics before becoming a professional cellist with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra in 1980. He has also played with Orchestra Victoria and the New Zealand, Tasmanian, and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras.
Willem has since conducted many symphony orchestras, choirs, and musicals in and around Melbourne. He is currently Musical Director of the Maroondah Symphony Orchestra. Willem also conducts at orchestral workshops, schools and music camps around Australia, is in demand as an adjudicator, and holds workshops in conducting.
The main work for the 2017 Winter Orchestra Workshop will be Symphony No. 3 in E♭ major (“Eroica”) by Ludwig van Beethoven. The edition we will be reading from at the workshop is the Bärenreiter Urtext edition.
We will also play a selection of shorter pieces for variety.
