Concert Band performs for Nambour Special School

The Sunshine Coast Concert Band will perform on Sunday, March 13 at 2pm at the Kawana Hall to raise funds for the Nambour Special School.

This is the first concert for the newly named band (previously known as the Caloundra City Concert Band), and musical director, Ken Chadwick has developed a great new program to start off the year.

The "Shades of Green" concert will include guest performances by singer Allan Winter, Irish entertainer, Ken O'Flaherty and will be compered by Cam Young. 

Amongst some of the bands old favourites the programme will feature Delibes - march and procession of Bacchus, a Trombone solo of 'Getting Sentimental', Annie Get Your Gun selections, New York New York, Clarinet Candy, Army of the Nile, Brazil and an alto-sax solo by Laura Thomas of Misty.

"Although the band has a new name, we are still the same band and will continue to entertain and help local charities as before," Ken Chadwick said.

"We changed our name to better reflect where our members come from and also because we fundraise for charities across the coast and not just in Caloundra."

The band still has some of the original musicians who helped set it up nine years ago and includes professional musicians such as well-known multi-instrumentalist, Ian Edwards.  

Almost $100,000 has been raised for coast charities and community projects over the years and the 45 band members all volunteer their time for this good cause.

Tickets for the concert are $10 and include afternoon tea.  For more information please contact Val on 5450 6680.
