The AGM was held on Wednesday. Minutes are available here >>
There have been some Committee changes and in particular we thank Pancho and Wolf for their years of service and contribution, and welcome Julie Woods and Merella Curtis as our new President and Vice-President.
Next rehearsal will be Wed 8th Feb 5-730pm at the Winsome.
While we are at it there are a few upcoming gigs for some of our friends and sister organisations with which we share players.
Onwards we go, and best to you all,
|Hi Ork Peoples,
Some items of interest:
THE BIG NEWS - RESTARTING ORK REHEARSALS
Well it sure has been a long time, but finally we can restart the normal Ork rehearsal cycle. 😁🎶👍
We are restarting in June at the Winsome Hotel, same time and place and as before - 6 for 630 pm start, and on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month. We'll send an email reminder beforehand, usually with the set list to be covered.
Pietro requests that you go to the >>upcoming events calendar on the website ahead of time to say whether you can make it or not. The choice of pieces may depend on who is attending. Just click on the event(s) and there is a dropdown to record availabilities. You will need to login first.
First rehearsal is 9 June - Details >>here.
Reminder: this is not a fortnightly rehearsal cycle as some months have 5 Wednesdays.
... and in Other News
As you probably know, various live music events are restarting in the region, but they need your support if possible, so here is a shameless plug for all the ones that contain Orks:
So - support the Live Arts if you can!
... plus one more thing to think about
Pietro is applying for Ork to perform at the Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival 22,23 and 24 October this year. Please think about whether you may be able to attend this, and it will also be really helpful to indicate your availability (or otherwise) on our website >>here.
That's enough for now. If you need more info please don't hesitate to reply and hassle.
Oops - my bad! I probably should have communicated this sooner.
There will be no Lismore Z'Ork tonight. 25 November was our last for the year. We will probably have a social meetup in January, and try to resume rehearsals in February.
Thanks to everyone for joining us for the Z'Orks this year, and big thanks in particular to Pietro and our guest Directors (looking at you Ernie, Luke and Omid) who have helped bring joy and hold it all together.
We have really enjoyed the company of all folk from down South and look forward to meeting in person one day.
Best of the season to everyone. Hoping that 2021 is an ever so slight improvement.
Well I guess you could all see this coming. Danged rotten virus! A message from our Fearless Leader:
Obviously Ork Liz, like everyone else, will have to have a break from rehearsals and gigs for a couple of months. Gathering in a small space is not really a necessity so best avoided. In the break, I hope to work on editing past recordings and a new piece or two.
I hope you all keep well and survive this challenge, and big thanks to everyone for contributing to a such great start to the year with all 3 of our gigs
So rehearsals are cancelled going forward until the end of May. We will review from time to time and keep you posted.
