Unley Concert Band will be appearing at the Strathalbyn Band Festival on Sunday 10th August at 11:30am. This long running popular event, organised by the Strathalbyn Concert Band, involves almost two dozen brass and concert bands around the South Australian metropolitan area each performing 30min entertainment programs and is a great day out for banding. Come along and support UCB in their performance at the Strathalbyn Town Hall.
The band will then contest their state Open A Grade Concert title once again at the South Australian Band Championships on Saturday 20th September, this year to be held in Hahndorf. Unley will also be represented by 23 soloists and small ensembles in individual events as well as the band’s regular participation in the Parade of Bands on Sunday 21st September.
