Moruya and District Brass Band Summer Concert Series

Uniting Church Batemans Bay Concert Hall

2PM Sunday 11 December 2022

Under the Musical Direction of Bandmaster Peter Poole, the Moruya and District Brass Band is performing a variety concert, comprised of stirring marches, slow and up-tempo tunes, as well as showcasing our musicians as soloists, in our Summer Concert on Sunday the 11th of December 2022 commencing at 2pm and finishing around 3.30pm.

The concert is held at the Uniting Church Batemans Bay Concert Hall (diagonally opposite the Catalina Country Club). Please note that the volume of a Brass Band is between soft and loud.

The concert will feature Joel Waters performing on Cornet, “Bless This House”, David Marshall performing on Euphonium, “The Emperor”, Ashley Stanley performing on Tuba, “Bass in the Ballroom”, Garry Robertson performing on Trumpet, “Till”, and a special performance from Camden Community Band musician Geoffrey Sharpe. Geoff is an ex-member of our band, and recently performed at the Gulgong Prince of Wales Opera House.

Peter Poole, a music educator with the Australian Childrens Music Foundation has now commenced Learners Class, Training Band and Junior Band. These musicianship classes will continue into the New Year, and Peter encourages anyone in the community who would like to commit to learning a brass band instrument to contact Band Manager Ashley on telephone 0409 907 713. In addition to the Senior Brass Band, musicians in the Learners Class, Training and Junior Bands will perform in the concert.

Entry to the concert is by a donation prior to the concert. The concert entrance will be open from 1:40pm. Donations raised will support the Band’s Music Fund and Pivot Point Welfare Relief Fund, providing much needed funding to support various services to our local community. Glenn Farquhar-Nichol, Chairman of Pivot Point Welfare Services will lead us as the concert compere.
