Afternoon of musical delights in support of Bloomhill

The award-winning Sunshine Coast Concert Band will host an afternoon of musical delights at Bellflower Retirement Resort, Sippy Downs on Sunday, October 26 from 2pm in support of Bloomhill Cancer Buderim.

The band led by musical director, Ken Chadwick, will be accompanied by singers, Bev Gourlay, Alan Winter and Aart Schouten. The concert will be followed by afternoon tea and a chance for guests to get involved and dance for the second part of the event.

The Sunshine Coast Concert Band has been involved in supporting a number of charities, and this time, the door takings will go to towards supporting Bloomhill Cancer in Buderim. Bloomhill offers immediate emotional support for any person going through the crisis of being diagnosed with cancer or other life challenging illness.

Musical Director, Ken Chadwick said that the band was really looking forward to the Bellflower concert and the opportunity to raise much needed funds for a local charity.

The band is proud to support such a worthy cause and this concert will be a slightly different from any other concerts we have performed in the past with a musical performance to kick the afternoon off, followed by chance for guests to join in and dance to some good old favourite tunes, Ken said.

So come along and support your concert band playing for our community. Tickets for the concert are available at the door at a cost of $5, which includes afternoon tea. For more information please call 5450 6680.

The Sunshine Coast Concert Band

The Sunshine Concert Band is a voluntary community band that has been performing since 1995 under the direction of Ken Chadwick. The band was previously known as the Caloundra City Concert Band, and changed its name to reflect the diversity of the members and charities assisted across the Sunshine Coast.

As well as professional musicians, members come from a vast range of professions including accountants, nurses, librarians and teachers and all band members participate purely for the love of it'.
The age of players ranges from 13 to 80 and approximately 85% of the original members still play in the band, which meets every Wednesday night for practise.
The band performs at several community events as well as monthly performances to raise funds for local charities.
The success of our band is largely due to this dedication which sees us playing at about ten to twelve charity concerts in a year. Additionally we also host three dances a year to raise funds to cover our ongoing costs.
