Orkeztar Lizmoré
Lismore, NSW, Australia

Orkeztar Lizmoré is a community orchestra based in the 'Northern Rivers' region of NSW (Australia). We play a smorgasbord of world music, both traditional & contemporary, from diverse cultural sources around the world, incl originals by members of Ork 'Orkeztar Lizmoré is one of the Northern Rivers region’s smallest big-bands - a wonderful community orchestra that plays tunes from all over the world ... ‘Orkeztar’ is an eastern European term for such an ensemble & Lizmoré is pronounced to rhyme with the Italian word for love, amore, because that’s the spirit in which each player comes to this (currently) almost thirty-strong musical group. Instruments include strings big & small, guitars, mandolins, squeezeboxes, whistles, flutes, sax, clarinet, percussion, keys, brass, voice & sometimes oud & ancient Persian instruments. ‘The Ork’, as it is affectionately known, plays musical pieces from around the globe, including several original songs composed & arranged by several talented musical directors – Mark Bromley, Jude Magee, and founder Pietro Fine. You can expect to hear a smorgasbord of tunes, including Celtic, Latin, Russian, Italian, Persian, or even a Frank Zappa song! Ork members come from ALL around the Northern Rivers & are of mixed abilities (some are pro's; some are beginners), but rehearsals are held in Lismore (often at Silvercloud Studios, but sometimes at other venues). Concerts/performances to date have been held in Bangalow, Lismore, The Channon & Nimbin (+ a small contingent travelled to Wollongong's 'HonkFest' early in 2016). Feel free to call Megan on 0414 393 370 to enquire about joining the band.
