Best young brass tal­ent

Maroochy Weekly - - LIFE -

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.
