Vale Jack Douglass

Our Leichhardt Band community was saddened to hear the news this week of the death of Jack Douglass, who was a player with Leichhardt Brass around 10 years ago. Jack was the consummate bandsman, a highly skilled euphonium player, and one of the nicest gentleman you’ll ever meet. We send our sincerest condolences to Jack’s family from all his friends at LCB.

A funeral  service will be held on Saturday 27th  May at 11 am, at Blacktown  Salvation Army Citadel in  Kempsey St, Blacktown

ANZAC Day 2023

LCB once again participated in this year’s dawn service. The service was very well attended. The role of bugler for The Last Post and Reveille was Mr Dennis Williams.

Visit to Pathways Cronulla Pines

A group of LCB players (plus a couple of helpers), visited Pathways Cronulla Pines Aged Care Residence recently. Ron Lee, now aged 99, was a founding member of Leichhardt Brass and now lives at this facility. The group played a concert for the residents and they absolutely loved it – there was even some dancing! Our group included Otto Hanzal who played tuba, also aged 99!
Both players and residents alike enjoyed it very much, and Ron was very appreciative of our visit.

Christmas Highlights

Christmas for us is always a busy time! After the previous years’ pandemic shutdowns, we resumed our two large Carols events at the end of last year, one in Engadine and the other at North Ryde Common. We played at an Artisan market in Waverton (The Coal Loader), and managed an enjoyable social gathering to celebrate the end of the year at Cafe Gioia, just across the road from Leichhardt Town Hall. Below are some of the highlights of that very busy period!



Joint concert with Camden Community Band

In March 2022 we were invited to participate in a joint concert with Camden Community Band. The theme for the concert was Symphonic Sounds and Super Soundtracks. Below are some highlights of our performance, courtesy of Murray Bishop, Director of Camden Band
