UCB has just returned from a very successful band camp at Strathalbyn to prepare for National Band Championships in Brisbane at Easter. The weekend consisted of intensive rehearsals for both the onstage and marching competitions to be held at St Laurence’s College in South Brisbane and the centre of Brisbane on Saturday 19th April. The weekend was a resounding success and we look forward to band camp potentially being made an annual event.
The Open A Grade competition will begin at 5:00pm on Easter Saturday. For those interested in watching the band perform from home, Brassbanned.com will likely be presenting a live feed on their website of each bands’ performance. The band will also try to defend their Open A Grade Concert marching title for the fourth year running at the Parade of Bands on Easter Saturday morning.
23 soloists and 5 small ensembles from the band will also be contesting the solo and party events, to be held on Monday 21st April 2014. You can see more details about the Nationals and view the section schedule at the ANBC website.
In the meantime, Unley Concert Band will be showcasing their Nationals program at a concert “Summon The Heroes” on Saturday 5th April 2014 at Scotch College at 7:30pm. Tickets are $15 adults, $10 concession available at the door.
Hope to see you all there to cheer on the Double Blues for their fourth Open A Grade Concert campaign!
