Why Join an Orchestra?

The Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra is often looking for new musicians to join its talented line-up and take part in upcoming concerts. If you can play an instrument to grade 6 or above, then here’s a quick look at why you might want to consider getting involved.

If you’ve never played in an orchestra before, then you might be unaware of the amazing experience that comes with playing so many people. Of course, you might be very successful and talented as a solo musician, but there is something special about playing as part of such a large ensemble. If you love listening to orchestral music while you commute to work or playing online games like cheekybingo.com, then you’re certainly sure to enjoy having the opportunity to be part of such a spectacular sound yourself. You may also enjoy playing rather different parts than those which are usually given to soloists.

In addition, joining an orchestra can be a great way to build upon your existing musical skills. You will be learning to play alongside others and follow the instructions of the conductor. If you are keen to expand up what you have already learnt in playing your instrument, then this can certainly be a good place to start. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet plenty of other people who either play the same instrument as you, or have similar musical interests. Being part of the Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra will give you the chance to meet new people from all walks of life, and you’re sure to enjoy the social side of becoming a member. The Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra also perform in a number of concerts throughout the year, so you’ll be able to experience performing to a large audiences, as well as trying your hand at playing a variety of musical pieces.
