Term 4 Adventures

Tonight marks the return of all bands to rehearsals for term 4. This term will be exciting with our major concert being held at the Geelong West Town Hall on Saturday November 24th in the evening (details to follow). Whilst we are still finalising the program, we are hoping that David Gardner and his quartet will join us for this concert. This concert will feature the Workshop Band under the direction of Michael Wilding, the Youth Band back under the direction of Kate Zampatti, and the Senior Band under the direction of Mark Irwin. Tickets will be available at the door for this concert.

This term is the final term for most of our Workshop Band members who will progress onto the Youth Band next year and as such we will be reforming the Workshop Band in 2013 as a beginner band. We will be holding an information evening in November (??mid – date to be confirmed) – keep this in mind as we invite everyone to come along and try out an instrument and start learning to play music from Term 1 2013.

Christmas will also feature this term with the Senior Band performing at Carols by Candlelight in Johnstone Park on Christmas Eve. Some members (including Michael Wilding as MD) will also be involved in Ocean Grove Carols on Sunday December 9th so go on down and support this event.

Come back soon for further details on these events coming up in Term 4.
