Kia ora everyone! WMC's Community Day 2023 is coming up! Everyone is invited to join students and staff of the Wellington Music Centre at our fun 1-hour workshops on Saturday June 24th 2023. We'll be making music together in the hall at Miramar North School, followed by time to eat, hang out, and meet as a community.
Here's all the info you'll need about the WMC community day:
Location: Miramar North School Hall
23 Weka Street, Miramar
Date: Saturday 24th June
Time: Workshop 1
10:00am - 11:00am
11:30am - 12:30pm
Music: Pokearekare Ana
Ode to Joy
Oh When the Saints Go Marching In
Oye Como Va
(lyrics and melodies will be taught on the day)
What to bring:
Students of WMC should bring their instrument/s and all the music they'll need to play along. Music stands will be provided. Students are more than welcome to join the special Community Day choir, or sit with their parents if that would be more comfortable, or if they haven't learned one of the pieces we'll be playing.
Visitors to WMC only need to bring themselves and their voices!
WMC will be providing some (free!) food for everyone, including vegetarian and vegan options. If you'd like to support the event by bringing some food to share, we'd love that! Sweet or savoury foods are both welcome, just remember to:
label your container so it doesn't go missing
note down or let us know what ingredients are in your food (especially nuts, eggs, milk, gluten, meat, etc)
drop your food at the food table when you arrive
pick up your container when you leave!
Bringing food is not required. Bake/cook up a storm if you like, but your presence is the only thing that really matters to us! There will be plenty to share. We will also be making sure everyone adheres to food safety procedures, including washing/sanitising hands.
Are there regular lessons on the day?
No, the workshops will replace the regular lessons on 24th June.
Should I come to both workshops or just one?
Just one. The two workshops will be the same, so you only need to attend one unless you've been asked to join both by your teacher (or you're having a great time and want to stick around!)
Which workshop should I come to?
Either! We recommend you attend whichever is closest to your usual lessons times, or is most convenient for your whānau.
When will food be served?
Food will be available immediately after each workshop.
Can I come if I don't have any kids/relatives in the WMC programme?
Yep! If you love music, care about the community, and would like to see what local kids are doing at WMC, you're invited. Bring the kids and make some friends!
Can I still join in if I don't play an instrument?
Absolutely! We'll be teaching the words and melodies for everyone to sing along in the workshops.
