Best young brass talent
IF YOU ever thought you needed to travel to experience quality brass band music, then think again.
The Sunshine Coast Youth Band, also known as Bright as Brass, is a collection of the best young musicians drawn from 10 schools in the Coast region.
Bright as Brass has an ever-increasing repertoire of music that has earned it local, state and national titles.
The bands reputation for producing quality music has been recognised by its major sponsor The Caloundra RSL Sub Branch, where the band had provided music for the Anzac Day service for the past three years.
Continuing that partnership, the band will be in concert at the Caloundra RSL Function Centre on Sunday, June 3.
It will share the program with Brisbane Brass, which will use this as its finale performance after touring the Central Coast.
Bright as Brass musical director Ms Elena Katahanas is proud to conduct the youth band, as well as a combined piece together with Brisbane Brass.
“The youth band has been working exceptionally hard over the past couple of months in preparation for this concert and I know it will be a wonderful showcase of the standard of brass playing on the Sunshine Coast,” she said.
Both bands will play a variety of pieces from traditional to contemporary and promises to be a concert that will appeal to music lovers young and old. Tickets, which will be available at the door, are $10 a person.
