Music lovers are in for a treat this weekend with the region’s 50-piece Resonance String Orchestra set to dispense Epic, the concert, live in Castlemaine Town Hall tomorrow afternoon.
Led by Zoe Knighton of Victoria’s acclaimed Flinders Quartet, the vibrant community string orchestra is made up of adult and student members who live in Macedon Ranges and Mount Alexander shire areas.
Members like Castlemaine’s Sue Proeve, Orvokki Britton and Anais Kerr say tomorrow’s 3pm matinee concert is a special one as it’s the first time the orchestra’s two chapters – based in Woodend and Castlemaine – have come together to perform in public.
“I just moved here at the start of the year from Mansfield and I love music so much, so being able to walk in here and find this is a dream come true,” says Orvokki Britton among the orchestra’s young violin players and completing year nine at Castlemaine Secondary College.
“After working with them for a year to be able to get out and perform is going to be amazing.”
Another of the orchestra’s Castlemaine violin players, Sue Proeve says to tomorrow’s concert will present a wide variety of music.
Sue also says it’s a great chance for those interested in joining the orchestra themselves to get along and see what they’re all about.
“Come along to the concert,” Sue says. Read more in today’s Mail…
