St Ives Retirement Village
Comments: Highly successful concert enjoyed by the audience in a very close, intimate setting. The audience had lots of questions and it became a very interactive concert. Young Leo (Naomi's boy) stole the show at the end with an (attempted) solo on whistle as we finished "Sandgroper Serenade". A wonderful supper was provided by the residents (one of the reasons we love performing at retirement villages !!).

Hale School Auditorium
Photo taken at the Hale School concert where WAMO combined with the guitar students from Hale School performing Wolki's "Suite No. 2". Wolki's work is unique in the mandolin repertoire in that in some movements there are up to four separate guitar parts allowing for full expression of the guitars. An ideal piece for showcasing the Hale School guitar students. Thanks go to Marcus Roberts at Hale School for co-ordinating this event.

Guitart Society Festival/Churchlands SHS Auditorium
Comments: A repeat of the Wolki "Suite No. 2" with the Hale School students. Well received as the final item on the programme for that day, and a pleasant surprise for many guitar enthusiasts to see such a large ensemble of plucked string instruments.
Sunday, 11th November 2007
Notre Dame University Courtyard
Comments: This concert featured works by three West Australian composers - John Jooste, Robert Schulz and Robert Kay (see photo below). The concert was held on a very hot day with limited air conditioning! Never the less, a succesful concert well recieved by the audience. Robert Schulz's young Winthrop Ensemble stole the show with a performance of the music they will be taking to Sydney for the Federation of Australasian Mandolin Ensembles (FAME) music camp on 6-12 January 2008.
L to R: John Jooste, Robert Schulz and Robert Kay
