We are proudly supported by the City of Maroondah and are pleased to support the local community as we have been for the past forty-nine years! All the bands rehearse once a week. The Brass Band on Tuesday evenings and the Concert Band and Wind Symphony on Wednesday evenings.
What do we do?
All the bands perform regularly throughout the year at concerts, community festivals, commemorative occasions and at Maroondah Council Citizenship Ceremonies. We are guided by a comprehensive set of aims which drive activities including our concert program, competitions and social events.
New members welcome
All of our bands welcome new players and we do not hold auditions. If you enjoy music and play a brass, woodwind or percussion instrument you would be most welcome to come along and experience our bands and organisation. No matter what your age or level of experience, one of our bands may well be the one for you.
