UCB is steadily heading for the end of another busy year for the Double Blues.
After welcoming our new Music Director with a great “Slip Into Spring” concert at Concordia College, the band has begun initial preparations for the Australian National Band Championships which will be held at Easter 2014 in sunny Brisbane. The band plans, once again, to contest the Open A Grade Concert section.
The band will be participating in several community events before the 2013 calendar wraps up. This SATURDAY, the band will be once again taking to the streets of Adelaide, marching in the 3.5km Credit Union Christmas Pageant at 10am.
The following Monday, the band will be participating in commemorative services for Remembrance Day at the Unley Memorial at 10:30am.
On Sunday 17th November, the band will perform an entertainment concert from 1:30-3pm in the grounds of Government House (corner King William Road and North Terrace) as part of the their Open Day activities. Please come along and support Unley Concert Band as well as take a look around the beautiful historic property. Entry is free but proceeds from a gold coin donation will support the Royal Flying Doctors Service. For more information, please Govt House Open Day Flyer.
The band will then participate in 5 further pageants to wrap up a successful year: Glenelg on Sunday 17th November (morning), Norwood on Saturday 23rd November (morning), Blackwood on Friday 6th December (6:30pm), Mount Barker on Saturday 7th December (morning) and Mannum on the same day (evening).
