Following the Thuringowa Brass Band's Annual General Meeting in September, Greg Finlay after 5 years at the front waving "the stick" stepped down as Musical Director. In his place, the new Musical Director will be Lachlan Cutler, who was Greg's deputy and also on occasions has been the stand-in conductor for Burdekin Brass Band and Herbert River Brass Band. Many thanks to Greg for his time and efforts and well wishes to Lachlan.
THURINGOWA BRASS BAND was successful in its application to the Gambling Community Benefit Fund Round 113. This grant will be used to purchase new instruments to replace instruments that have either reached their end of useable life, or rapidly approaching that time. Additionally, a purpose-built trailer to carry large brass and percussion instruments can now be purchased to replace the current trailer which has reached the end of its working life.
The Band would like to extend its thanks to the referees to this application, in particular Aaron Harper MP, State Member for Thuringowa. We would also like to extend our sincere thanks to Greg Aitken and his team at Brass Music Specialists, the one-stop shop for brass and woodwind instruments and also to Arthur Florence at Music Aid Brass and Woodwind Repairs, your local brass and woodwind repair specialist.
THURINGOWA BRASS BAND practises on Monday evenings from 7:30 – 9:30PM at the Thuringowa Soundshell, beside the Dan Gleeson Gardens.
We welcome brass instrument and percussion players to come and join the Band. Come and play at a rehearsal, or contact us for more details. Want to join us? Keen to learn? Interested in booking us? Please contact the Band!
