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 have had two attempts at our May Concert, and both times we have failed: Lockdown a few days before we could do the concert. We have a concert scheduled on October 24th, and that is the next time we will attempt a concert. We will bring the solo items from the May concert and add some new pieces. And we will just hope to see you all then. As the number of days that are available for rehearsal dwindle, the content of the concert will become closer and closer to what we had planned for May. It should still be fun for the audience, but the band is really looking forward to the time when we can get out some new music.
