MEMBERSHIP, WHAT'S THE BENEFIT?
As a regular musician with WPO, apart from the wonderful experience of performing with like minded amateur musicians, becoming a member allows the orchestra to continue to provide to the community of the Eastern Suburbs a wonderful creative outlet. Perform with world class soloists, such as Andrey Gugnin, recently debuted with the London Symphony Orchestra and world renowned clarinetist Dimitri Ashkenazy but to name two. So where does your money go?
On average, the WPO rehearses 10 calls per term, or 40 calls year – not including performances. Broken down, this means your full Adult membership fee costs you less than $5 per call, exceptional value! All the administration of WPO is done free of charge, largely by the committee and other musicians in the WPO who volunteer countless hours of their personal time to the running of the orchestra.
