The Eltham Concert Band

The Eltham Concert Band is a community band based in Eltham in the Shire of Nillumbik in the North Eastern suburbs of Melbourne (Australia). We are partly supported by the Shire Council and we perform for a wide range of community service groups and in various community functions such as: The Nillumbik, Warrandyte and Banyule Festivals; Council functions and Judge Book Village events.
Eltham Concert Band has a proud history of providing enjoyable music making for the players as well as exciting entertainment for the community. The Band celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2015. Several of the members have been with the Band for most of that time.

As usual, we will perform without an interval, and we invite you to stay after the performance to partake of refreshments and to chat with the band to tell us which bits you liked. The band rehearses hard to try and bring you an enjoyable concert, so feedback is always welcome. This is the first concert that will be conducted by our new Musical Director Phillip Johansen. Stephen Deakes (our previous MD) is still associated with the band, and was responsible for some of the preparation for the concert, but now he is sitting in the saxophone section. So the Saxophone Section now has both the tallest member of the band, and the shortest. Some of the music we have played before, but not for some time; some of it is new to the band, and we hope you like it all. The other traditional element of the afternoon is the raffle. This is an essential item: it is fun, but it also allows the band to get their breath back to perform the closing numbers.
