AUSTA Playing Opportunities
West Melbourne Schools Orchestra
Founded in 2016, we aim to provide young musicians in West Melbourne a place to play good music and socialise with other like-minded students. We rehearse on Thursday night 6.30 – 8.30 at Footscray City College and welcome musicians aged 11 – 17 who live and/or attend school in the western suburbs of Melbourne. The ensemble is currently made up of students from 12 of the regions schools. Originally funded from a grant from the Rosemary and John Hopkins Award for Conductors, the ensemble is conducted by Jenny Going with regular visits from our patron Benjamin Northey.
