Dear Parent/Carer

Would your child/children like to come and join us in our Young Musicians’ Day 2018?

On the 9th of September the orchestra opens its doors and invites budding young orchestral musicians to join with our players to make music for the day.

Players of all orchestral instruments are invited (Grade 3 standard or above). There is no charge for participation in this event.

The session will take place on Sunday 9th September from 10am to 5pm in Dumfries Academy Hall. During the rehearsals, refreshments and snacks will be provided and the day rounded off with a short informal concert for friends and family (friends and family are also most welcome to stay for all or part of the rehearsals).

Music will be issued in advance by email to enable players to practise their music beforehand. Please indicate on the application form if you would like the music to be sent to you by post instead.
