Student and Professional Wind Musicians Join Together on Stage

The Orange Regional Conservatorium (ORC) is proud to present our annual celebration of woodwind and brass music Howling Winds, featuring renowned Australian wind quintet The Chambermaids. The concert will be an inspiring mix of student performances, community ensembles and professional musicians.
Howling Winds is an opportunity for the talented woodwind and brass musicians of Orange to join together to perform challenging and enjoyable chamber music. ORC groups such as the Symphonic Wind Ensemble and Senior Flute Ensemble will be featured alongside a selection of scholarship winners and advancing students performing solo material.
ORC are also delighted to have special guests The Chambermaids attending this year, and the group have kindly offered to work with woodwind and brass musicians in what is sure to be an inspirational and informative workshop during the afternoon, then performing alongside the students. The Chambermaids will be also performing a selection of music during the concert that will feature the ORC’s very own Laith Ismail on Oboe.
“Opportunities for regional musicians to spend time working with and learning from such talented and accomplished classical musicians come by rarely and we are incredibly excited to able to offer the music community of Orange this experience”, said ORC Head of Woodwind Prem Love “We would like to invite anyone interested in Woodwind, Brass or Chamber music to come along to the workshop, to join in or even just observe and then be a part of the concert.”
Being such a busy time of year with AMEB Music Exams and the Orange Eisteddfod underway, concerts such as Howling Winds can be a fantastic way for students to perform music in a relaxed and social setting. With the workshop only costing $5 and concert tickets just $10, this is another of the Orange Regional Conservatoriums accessible and inclusive community music events.
