The Eltham Concert Band
The Eltham Concert Band is a community band based in Eltham in the Shire of Nillumbik in the North Eastern suburbs of Melbourne (Australia). We are partly supported by the Shire Council and we perform for a wide range of community service groups and in various community functions such as: The Nillumbik, Warrandyte and Banyule Festivals; Council functions and Judge Book Village events.
Eltham Concert Band has a proud history of providing enjoyable music making for the players as well as exciting entertainment for the community. The Band celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2015. Several of the members have been with the Band for most of that time.
Our next major concert is on October 27th, and tickets are now on sale at https://www.trybooking.com/BEROP .
This should be a really special event. Local pianist May Gavin will be performing Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" accompanied by the band. And we have managed to prevail on her to play with us for a couple of other pieces with important piano parts: "The Man from Snowy River", and Percy Grainger's "Children's March".
Monti's "Czardas" was originally for a solo violin, and our Musical Director has decided that it is very suitable for a solo clarinet. But several of our fine clarinettists have put their hand up: you will have to come along to the concert to find out who gets selected.
As usual, we invite you to stay after the concert, have a bite to eat, and to talk to the band.
