Local Bocal July 2022

 Dear Double Reeders,

  • The St John’s Concert this year will have the theme of Bohemian Music (Dvorak, Janacek, Reicha, Smetana, Martinu et al) on 7th August. And Bohemian Rhapsody of course! The rehearsals for this will be on 27th July 7-9, 1st August7-9 and 6th August 2-4 all at Marryatville. We need as many players as possible and there will be suitable parts available no matter what standard you are at. Put the dates in your diary and REGISTER with me (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) as soon as you can so we can start preparing the parts. If you’ve played at this concert before you will know what fun it is, and if you haven’t, you have a treat in store! We would like to thank in advance all our friends from the ASO who have accepted our invitation to play in the first half of the Concert. We need a large audience as it is a fundraiser so please use the attached flyer to encourage as many people as possible to attend.

  • Those of you who have registered already will receive a separate email soon with details about publicity and rehearsals
