THE SEARCH IS OVER!!! The band very pleased to announce that we have found our new Musical Director – Sonia Samain. Sonia is a local instrumental music teacher and has also previously been MD of Nuriootpa Town Band, so we are glad to have such an experienced person taking on the important role of MD. Sonia officially starts as MD of NTB on the 18th of August.
Maybe your instrument isn’t one you’d normally find in a concert band, but you’re looking for more opportunities to perform? Perhaps your secondary instrument is woodwind, brass or percussion, but your primary instrument isn’t – you could play both in a concert band when we need an unusual instrument. Concert bands have quite a flexible instrumentation and from time to time certain pieces will require guitars, keys/pianos, vocals, maybe a harp, or even some more sci-fi sounding instruments like theramins (which can be played using computer-based apps these days). Please get in contact with us via Facebook or here on our website for more information or to let us know if you would like to come along to a rehearsal.

If you play oboe, bassoon, clarinet, bass clarinet, flute, french horn, alto sax, tenor sax, baritone sax, Bb trumpet, tenor trombone, bass trombone, euphonium, tuba, bass guitar or percussion you are able to join a concert band. We are an ensemble of many genres – jazz, pop, rock, classical, songs from stage and screen, marches, as well as symphonic music written especially for concert band.
