During lockdown the DiOrchestra was able to still have practices on Zoom every Wednesday. During these rehearsals we would all be on mute and would play along to a recording of our pieces. This helped us to keep on top of our music so when we got back to school we all were playing our pieces well and making good progress.  On the 20th of June the DiOrchestra was able to have a workshop with Tim Carpenter, throughout the afternoon we had sectionals with outside tutors/specialists including Mr Burnell, Mrs Kane, Mrs Bev Oliver, Oliver Barratt, Mr Chris Nation, Mrs Anne Mendrun, Mrs Smith and participated in the workshop with Tim Carpenter where we worked on technique and improved our 4 pieces for this year, which are Pirates Of The Caribbean, Wonder Woman, Gallop from the collection Ring Around The Moon and and a Arrangement of Amadeus by Mozart.  At the end of the day we had a concert for our friends and family which was well attended. It was a fun day and we worked really hard and made good progress.  Many thanks to Richard Lummus for the photos. 

 We really appreciate the input from our musical community working with us to become better musicians. We look forward to performing some pieces at the end of the term to residents at Hilda Ross Retirement Village.
