Volunteers were busy on Friday afternoon, helping our new members find their place to sit (or stand) at the hall! Thanks to the support of the Peter Lehmann Arts & Education Trust (PLAET) & Foundation Barossa, the NTB has successfully brought a new attraction to Nuriootpa for locals and tourists. This, in line with the announcement that Nuriootpa is a finalist in the 2021 TICSA Top Tourism Town, is a great excuse to come and visit!
We’re told the new members are friendly and don’t mind having a photo with you – just be sure if uploading to social media to tag our Facebook page & use the #NuriootpaTownBand so we can see all your wonderful photos!
When it comes to the instrumentation of a concert band, most people will think of flutes, clarinets, saxophones, trumpets, trombones, tubas and drumkit. Indeed, this is the standard set of instruments for a concert band, especially at school level, but as students become aware of the variety of instruments they may choose to diversify, or, if as an adult you play in a band lacking a certain instrument you may be prevailed upon to learn a new instrument.Learn more about the rare, but highly valued instruments that can be part of the concert band structure.If you play one of these instruments we would love for you to come along and play with us.
Welcome back to all band members and anyone who would like to come along for a toot, honk or bash. We welcome players of any standard, even those who haven’t played in a while and are feeling a bit rusty.
We resume rehearsals tomorrow night at 7:30pm. If you are attending for the first time please come along a bit earlier (the hall is usually open from 7pm) to meet our Musical Director, Sonia, and find a seat in the band.
Have you been over to our Facebook page recently? If not, you’re missing out!! NTB hosts a Tuneful Tuesday on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, showcasing concert bands local, national and international. This month, December 2020, we decided to feature a snippet of our very own concert, held back in October. Enjoy!
