We hope everyone has had the opportunity to enjoy their Easter break, despite the efforts of the changing weather we have experienced from time to time!
We now start a term that includes performances for all sections of the Orchestra, beginning with our concert at Camberley Theatre in the evening of Saturday 13th May.
We hope that everyone will make a special effort to be available for the performances scheduled for their section. Concerts and play-outs, as well as being good experience for our members, provide opportunities for us to promote CYWO membership. Therefore, a full attendance of the members of each section for performances is the best way of demonstrating what CYWO can offer to potential new members.
Ticket Sales for the Spring Concerts - Saturday 13 May 2023
As advised in the Newsletter circulated to parents and Orchestra members on 13th March, tickets for our May concerts this year are now on sale through the Camberley Theatre box office. Information regarding the ordering and collecting of tickets was included in the March Newsletter. A copy of this is available on our website via the following link: https://www.cywo.org/letters .
All sections of the Orchestra will perform at the concert on 13th May and information regarding attendance for a rehearsal and the performance that day will be circulated nearer the date.
We would kindly ask that all Orchestra members and their parents actively encourage family and friends to purchase tickets for this coming May concert.
Spring Concert Raffle
Those of you who have attended our concerts will know that we always have a raffle when we can. Our concert raffles help us to raise funds to cover the cost of sheet music, polo shirts, instrument repair, van hire for the logistics team, advertising, the website...etc.
In advance of our May concerts we would very much welcome the donation of items for the raffle. If you don't have any ideas of what to donate, fancy biscuits, wine of any variety, lovely chocolates as well as any items that would appeal to our younger audience are all very popular. Items will be combined to make attractive hampers as prizes on the night.
Please bring your donations to one of our rehearsals before the concert, preferably on 22nd April or 29th April. Thank you.
Raffle tickets will only be available on the night, so please stop by our raffle table in the foyer of Camberley Theatre when you attend for the concert. Both cash and card payment for raffle tickets will be welcomed.
