The Senior Band and GCB Big Band will start of this years performance with a concert in the Botanical Gardens 21st Century Garden. The bands have been invited by the Friends of the Gardens Committee to perform on Sunday March 15 from 5pm to 7:30pm. Bring along a chair and a picnic and enjoy the performance by both of our bands. Tickets cost $10 for individuals and $25 for families and can be purchased through GPAC. Come along and support this local event.
The GCB will also host its first in house concert at Robertson Hall on Sunday March 29th at 2pm. This concert will feature Senior Band, Youth Band and hopefully the Workshop Band will be able to perform as well. Tickets can be purchased at the door and cost $5 for concession and $8 for Adults. Come along and support the GCB.
It is with much sadness that we advise that Amy has decided to resign from the Youth Band conductor’s role so that she can focus on her commitment to her teaching and reduce her extra-curricular commitments. We are very grateful for all that Amy has done with the Youth Band and wish her well with her future. Amy will remain a part of the GCB by continuing to perform with our Senior Band.
Kate Zampatti has been appointed to the position of Youth Band Music Director. Kate will be well known to the Youth band members having filled in occasionally for Amy over the past two years and is well known to the old Workshop Band members.
Moving Kate to the Youth Band left a vacant position in the Workshop Band and we are pleased to advise that we have appointed Melanie Humphrey to this position. Mel currently teaches at Kardinia International College and will be very well suited to the Workshop Band music director’s position.
We say thank-you to Amy for all of her years of input into the Youth Band and welcome Kate and Mel to the Youth and Workshop Band music director roles respectively.
