The Rooms

 

Guitar Orchestra (IMGO) enquire here

 

The Impromptu Music Guitar Orchestra (IMGO) is now in it's second year and is calling for more players to join. This is an exciting ensemble of jazz and classical guitars that includes Contra Bass, Bass, Prime, Terz, Alto and Soprano guitars.

IMGO supplies all the guitars and scores for the orchestra and all rehearsals are held at Impromptu Music's recording studio.

In 2014 I have established Advanced and Intermediate Orchestras. This is to cater for the development of greater skills with more challenging repertoire for the advanced players and then allowing for more technical development of the intermediate players.

Advanced Orchestra

The Advanced orchestra will meet each Monday evening during the NSW School Term between 7pm and 10pm. All scores will be given out in PDF format on CD's for each player. All materials for rehearsals is provided for the sessions by IMGO. This year we will be doing several public performances and dates will be posted on this site when confirmed.

Intermediate Orchestra

The Intermediate orchestra is designed to develope sight reading, technical and ensemble skills to allow the players to gain the confidence and technical fluency to move to the advanced orchestra.
