“Pull out the carols please girls”.  With this request Ken Chadwick OAM sets in motion the preparations for the 2016 Christmas Crackers concert by the Sunshine Coast Concert Band.  The “behind the scenes preparations” for this event are many but perhaps one of the most important aspects is getting the correct music to 40+ musicians.  

This task falls to 3 “young at heart” ladies.  Pictured left to right are Lois Travers of Battery Hill, Val Clarkson from Maleny and Val Lane of Maroochydore. Librarians for the Sunshine Coast Concert Band, they find their hands full every month, indeed sometimes more than once a month, preparing music for the many members of the band.  

With hundreds of songs in the band’s library, these dedicated volunteers attack the band’s filing cabinets with gusto, ensuring that the percussion section has what it needs, as do the brass, reed and wind instruments.  They form a very important section of the band’s support group.  All are volunteers and in the 20 years the band has been operating, that has resulted in over $500,000 being raised for local charities and not for profit organisations.

The Christmas Crackers concert this year will be held on Sunday 4th December.  An afternoon of musical Christmas favourites as well as songs from many other genres.
