Event Details

The Geraldton City Band once again has great pleasure in bringing together school bands from Geraldton and Morawa to present a musical extravaganza. This concert is a platform for the children who are involved in the band programs within their schools, to perform alongside other bands in the community for friends and family. It also presents an opportunity for the younger students to hear more experienced bands play, hopefully giving them more incentive to continue their musical paths through the school band programs.

Each band individually presents their own selection of music before the interval, while the second half is a fantastic showcase of music from all players interweaved into a Massed Band of around 260 musicians. There is also light entertainment provided in the foyer prior to the show by a jazz band, and music from an ensemble during the interval break – both these groups consist of students from Geraldton Senior College. Smaller groups of musicians from the other bands will also perform in front of the curtain in between band performances during the first half.

Bands on show this year include:
Geraldton Combined Schools Training Band;
John Willcock College Concert Band;
Geraldton Grammar School Concert Band;
Geraldton Senior College Concert Band;
Morawa District High School Brass Band; and
Geraldton City Band.

As this concert includes several bands, it usually extends past 10pm but is always very exciting and thoroughly enjoyed by the students and their extended families and friends.
