Little Red Orchestra

The Little Red Orchestra is a fresh new project by The Little Red Company, led by long-time Little Red orchestral arranger and musical collaborator, Maitlohn Drew. Offering an opportunity for adults who played in instrumental ensembles at school, or in youth or community orchestras to reconnect with their instrument and rekindle or continue their love of orchestral music with like-minded friends in a fresh and exciting way.

The Little Red Orchestra will provide exciting new orchestral arrangements focussing on contemporary music and film scores. Our bespoke orchestral arrangements will cater for beginners and advanced players alike, however, AMEB Grade 4 and above is recommended.

The Little Red Orchestra is a safe and welcoming environment for adults of all ages.

Do I have to be an experienced player?
Our orchestra is a great way for adults who played instruments in school to reconnect with their love of orchestra music – there is no pressure to be at a professional level of playing, but some previous experience will definitely help!
What sort of repertoire will we cover?
We’ll be working on contemporary repertoire across all styles, but we can promise each piece will include Little Red’s signature flair and creativity.
What do I need to bring?
Your instrument, a water bottle, sheet music (you could either have this printed or digitally on an iPad or similar), a smile and your fabulous musicianship! Please note we also ask that you wear closed in shoes throughout the Judith Wright Arts Centre.
Will there be a performance outcome?
Yes! We will have an end of year concert plus any other performances throughout the year.
What if I can’t attend all rehearsals?
That’s ok! We understand that between things like sickness and real life, it can be tricky to make everything work. Please note there will be no make up rehearsals or refunds if you need to skip a week.
Is the rehearsal venue accessible?
Yes! The Judith Wright Arts Centre is wheelchair accessible with lifts operating within the building.
Are payment plans available?
We will endeavour to meet everyone’s needs as best as we can. If you are struggling to afford the term fee, please reach out to us at info@thelittleredcompany.com 

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch - we’d love to have you playing with us!
