Initial Details for 2015 Announced

Initial details for the 2015 Australian Band Championships have been announced with the release of Newsletter No. 1 by the NSW organizing committee.

Following the Parade of Bands, planned to be held in Hyde Park North, a Commemoration and Wreath Laying Ceremony will be held, with the assistance of the Australian RSL (NSW Branch), at the ANZAC Memorial, Hyde Park South. This service will be a special time to remember those community band members who paid the supreme sacrifice on active service and those who have since passed away.

New Music Commissioned

In honouring our members and in commemorating the Centenary of ANZAC eight new works have been commissioned by prominent, proven Australian composers as Test Pieces for each of the Open Band grades using aspects of the commemoration and the spirit of ANZAC as the inspiration for their works. Further details of the early arrangements for this iconic event can be researched here.
