Music Matters

Music ensembles gearing up for rehearsals

Our Year 7-12 Ensembles are starting rehearsals for 2020 over the coming weeks, so now is the time for new students and existing musicians and singers who would like to join a band/orchestra/choir to come along and meet the crowd as they start to learn new songs and pieces. If you are new to Tintern and interested in joining a choir or instrumental ensemble, please check the table below and feel free to come along to try out a group before making a full commitment to it. Even if you are not a new student, you’re still welcome to jump on board! You will be made to feel welcome and you will meet many like-minded musicians who enjoy getting together to rehearse and perform music on a regular basis. All ensembles are welcoming new members (apart from a few auditioned ensembles, marked * in table).

If you are unsure as to which group you should join, please come up and introduce yourself to Mrs Feenane in the Music Office and she will be able to help you, or she will guide you to a music teacher who will be able to advise you.

Music Lockers for hire

There are a limited number of lockable music lockers available for hire in the Senior Music Department corridor at a cost of $10 per term. These are particularly useful for students in ensembles and who have lessons upstairs in the Music Department, allowing them to store instruments securely during the school day. Funds from the hire of these lockers go directly to the Tintern Friends of Music Committee who, in turn, support the musical endeavours of our students through purchases of equipment and funding of special musical experiences. Please email or call our Music Administrator, Mrs Elizabeth Feenane, for further details ( or 9845 7837)
