Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

THE 1st Reg­i­ment of the Royal Aus­tralian Ar­tillery Band wowed the crowds at the Dalby State School Creek­side Mar­kets, WDOP mar­kets and Dalby State High School’s Great Hall last week­end.

Com­mu­nity mem­bers were amazed at the band’s abil­ity to play a range of pop­u­lar melodies that cap­tured the au­di­ence’s attention from the first note.

The band also per­formed a con­cert with Dalby State School stu­dents from Prep to Year 6.

Dalby State School mu­sic teacher Katie Com­mens or­gan­ised the band’s visit to Dalby and said their visit was in­spir­ing.

“We are for­tu­nate to have a qual­ity band with mu­si­cians of high cal­i­bre visit and play at the Creek­side Mar­kets and other venues in town,” Miss Com­mens said.

“The con­cert at the Dalby State School High School was re­mark­able.

“Dalby State School mu­sic teach­ers were de­lighted to have a group of en­thu­si­as­tic mu­si­cians play in front of our stu­dents as well as pro­vid­ing work­shops for stu­dents in the in­stru­men­tal pro­gram.”

The band has a long his­tory in the RADF and is cur­rently tasked with pro­vid­ing sup­port to com­mu­ni­ties across Queens­land.
