Concert Bands to perform at Bands Showcase 11

All three concert bands have been preparing for a wonderful evening of music on Monday November 7th.
The evening will start at 7.30pm at St. Patrick’s Hall in Wangaratta and will take the form of cabaret seating. Patrons are encouraged to bring their own food and non-alcoholic drinks.
The night will begin with a performance from the Year 7 Band and the improvement this group has made during the year will surprise many in the audience as the students only began learning their instrument in Term 1 this year.
The Year 8 Band will perform next with a varied program of pieces that display their confidence and maturity.
The Senior Band who recently performed in the Great Hall of Parliament house in Canberra will demonstrate how far they have developed their skills since last year.
A guest performance from the Wangaratta City Concert Band will also be a highlight on the evening. Several awards will be presented during the night recognising high achievement in each band and the grand finale will be a performance from all three bands performing together.
The Friends of Music Support Group will provide tea and coffee throughout the night and will be selling tickets to the raffle featuring a wonderful hamper as first prize.
Tickets are available at the door – $10 for an Adult, $5 for a child and $20 for immediate family members. Please note – This is an alcohol free event.
