Christmas Crackers Concert

As the name suggests, there will be an explosion of joyful sound when the Sunshine Coast Concert Band  present their "Christmas Crackers" concert in the Kawana Community Hall (behind the Kawana Library, Nanyima St., Buddina), on Sunday 8th December, starting at 2pm.

This is the band's  "last hurrah" for 2013, so it will feature some tunes from recent concerts which the band members have selected as their favourites - a Dixie Group playing Medleys of Gershwin and Glen Miller, an African Symphony and an American Patrol - ie a very diverse selection.

The MC will be John Sheed, and the singers  (Aart Schouten, Alan Winter and Bev Gourlay), will entertain with some popular Christmas songs such as The Christmas Bells, and the band's  own version of The 12 Days of Christmas.

Like the festive Bon Bons, the musical contents will delight - and be different from the usual tunes.
The concert will end with a couple of singalong carols, as the band exemplifies "We wish you a Merry Christmas".

So, no matter what the weather on the day, the audience will be guaranteed a warm, snug, festive afternoon of excellent music!

Cost is only $12, payable at the door, and this includes afternoon tea.   
See you there!

And.........The SCCB have enjoyed a very successful year, having produced music for 8 concerts and 2 Balls, where the proceeds have been given to the local charities of Nambour Special School, Sunshine Coast Community Hospice, Blue Care Nurses, Cittamani Hospice, Coolum Chaplaincy, Hear and Say, Maroochydore Rotary and Legacy.
Each year, we also provide the music for the Buderim Anzac Day services.

We’ve held 3 dances, and with the Christmas concert these dances raise funds for our running costs, and also gives the band members a good end of year party!

We thank the community for supporting the SCCB’s efforts in providing high quality entertainment and raising lots of $$s for our Charities.

Under Ken Chadwick’s baton we have a similar programme of events organised for 2014.
