LYCO in 2015


The Piccolo Strings, Intermezzo Strings and Launceston Symphony Orchestra all resume rehearsals this week, with the first rehearsal on Friday, 6th February 2015.

Piccolo Strings and Intermezzo Strings start and finish 15 minutes later: 4:15 pm to 5:15 pm.  This should ease concerns by students travelling from school.

For the complete rehearsal calendar for 2015, see the Rehearsals page.

Rehearsals remain at the City Baptist Church, 11 Frederick St, Launceston.

The old LYCO Website design, used from 2007-05-10 to 2013-09-06

The LYCO website has just been redesigned for the first time since it launched on 10th May 2007.  Thanks to CSS Media Queries, the new site should fit better on smartphones and tablets, while also expanding to make more use of large desktop screens.

The new site allows comments on some pages, including this one.  For this particular post, please leave a comment if the new site looks badly formatted in your browser.  Or, e-mail
