The Arts Unit offers 6 weekly instrumental music ensembles. Weekly instrumental ensembles are open to NSW public school students in Years 5 to 12 and rehearse at The Arts Unit, in the grounds of Lewisham Public School. Membership is by audition and successful students become a member of their ensemble for one year. All students must re audition every year to become a member of a weekly instrumental ensemble.
How to apply
Applications to audition for the weekly instrumental ensembles open on our website in August to audition for membership for the following year.
Applications for 2021 instrumental music ensembles are now closed. If you would like to enquire about a late application, please contact Lindsay Pringle at firstname.lastname@example.org or on (02)8512 1188
The annual cost in 2021 is $420 per student, per ensemble.
