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.
We are back rehearsing, and have held our first concert in two years
On May 29th the band had its first concert in two years. For some of our players it was the first time they have performed with the band, while others had performed before, but not for a while. From the comments we heard, we had not forgotten how it should be done, and some said it was the best the band has performed. A ay off on the Monday after the performance while we get new music in the folders, and then we are back rehearsing for our October concert.
