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
Like all bands and orchestras, the Eltham Concert Band did not have a great run in 2021. We started with some rehearsals in the leadup to a May Concert that never happened, but it was only in November and December that we resumed rehearsing, this time for the Warrandyte carols. The carols went ahead, allowing the band their first performance since Warrandyte carols 2019. For 2022, we are hoping to start rehearsing at the end of January, and with a normal, full concert series.
