The Southern Tasmanian Community Orchestra are excited to present this opportunity for string players and players of other instruments in Hobart and Southern Tasmania.
Welcome to the Home Page for STCO!
The Southern Tasmanian Community Orchestra, as a training orchestra, offers the opportunity for players, strings and other instruments, particularly older beginners, Grade 3 and above, to develop their orchestral string playing technique in a friendly environment with the focus being on enjoyment, social interaction and playing skills advancement.
Participants will form an orchestral ensemble in which aspects of orchestral playing will be covered, including bowing, dynamics, following a conductor, musical styles and interpretation. This will be under the guidance of experienced conductors, teachers and string and other instrument players.
This is an opportunity to experience new repertoire, meet other musicians and players, gain confidence in orchestral techniques and expand your musical knowledge!
Some of the most satisfying string playing you can do is in a group situation, from string quartet to symphony orchestra. Let us help you to develop your skills, become more confident and enjoy your string playing even more!
