How Do I Take Part?

It’s easy to become a member of the Online Orchestra!

Step 1 – Choose your part from the options below, download the pdf and start practising.

Step 2 – Download any learning resources you would like to utilise (available from November 2020). There is some fantastic information about the cultural history of the narrative and instructions on how to pronounce the Yugambeh words.  Plus much more!

Step 3 – Download the correct click track.  Please look carefully to make sure you select the option that’s right for you.

Step 4 – When you’re ready to record, find an interesting place and background (but your lounge room is fine) and follow our guidelines (coming soon) to record your part.

Step 5 – YOU MUST PLAY ALONG WITH THE CLICK TRACK!  If you don’t we won’t be able to use your entry.  But we don’t want to be able to hear the click track, so make sure you or your conductor is listening to the track through headphones.

Step 6 – Send your video to us via the Entry page (open from April 1, 2021).

Click Track

You need to record your part using a click track, to keep our Online Orchestra together and in time. Simply download the click track below (right click on the player) and and play it through a set of headphones while you perform your part. For ensembles, the conductor can listen to the click track through headphones while they conduct.

There is a concert A at the beginning of the click track and then a 2-bar count-in before the piece starts. This count-in is indicated on each part.

Full click track

Participants wishing to record a shorter version can record either the first half of the song (finishing at the end of bar 58) or the second half (starting at bar 59/letter D). Both of these versions start with a two-bar count-in.

First half click track Second half click track

Lead Sheet

The Lead Sheet contains the lyrics and chords and is suitable for individual singers and musicians wanting to read chords rather than notation.

If there isn’t a part for your instrument, use this score to take part in the Online Orchestra!
