Free Concert 7th July 2024

If you’ve been keeping up with everything that’s happening with us, you’ll know we are embarking on another trip to Europe. In preparation for this, we will be having a concert on 7th of July at Leichhardt Town Hall to perform some of the pieces that make up our repertoire for the tour. Come along, it’s free, and afternoon tea will be served as well. What’s not to like about that! It will be quite a blast!

Players and learners welcome

Leichhardt Celebrity Brass is very much drawn from the community, and as such all players are keen to encourage others to learn, play, and enjoy all the benefits that come with being part of such a community. The band rehearses on Wednesday nights at 7:30pm. However, we are starting a tutoring session from 6:15pm the same day. It’s free to participate, and there are instruments available for loan. Students playing instruments as part of a school program can come along and extend their playing. Many players in LCB took up playing at the same time as their children, so if you are a parent and would like to sit alongside your child and learn, this is an ideal place for that to happen. It’s a fun and safe environment and you really won’t regret taking up this opportunity.

Europe 2024

Plans for our band trip to Hungary are well underway. We begin on the 30th of September, most of us meeting in Vienna for transport to Budapest. We spend a couple of days in and around Budapest before heading to Buk. After several days around Buk we head for beautiful Salzburg, the home of the Sound of Music. It is here that the tour ends on the 11th of October.

For this trip, we are teaming up with players from the Bankstown and Yagoona Brass, as well as a number of guest players. We’ve been busy rehearing our repertoire and there’s quite a buzz between the players.

The lead up to Christmas for anyone is always a bit hectic, but for players in a band, it’s even more so. Here’s a selection of photos from the various December playouts, as well as some candid pictures from our Christmas party!
