While staying in Melbourne I had the privilege to play with the Southern Peninsula Concert Band each Friday night. Last night was my last rehearsal. I will miss these musicians who welcomed me and made me feel part of their group. To every member, a huge thank you. They are a very professional group with Barry the Music Director who runs a brilliant rehearsal that gives everyone inspiring music to play as well as keeping it fun. Check out their website or Facebook page and if you are a musician travelling in the Mornington/Rosebud area with your instrument, go along and meet this amazingly talented Concert Band.
Last night we welcomed a visiting musician, Claudia Bachmayer (who plays Flute and Piccolo with the South Burnett Community Orchestra) from Kingaroy, Queenland to our practice night. She looked us up on our website and will be coming along to the next two practices as well. Welcome Claudia!
Message from the President:
Jack Butcher's funeral will be at the Uniting Church, Murray Anderson Rd, Rosebud at
2 pm on Tuesday the 11th of April.
If you are attending please wear band uniform.
Also if you wish to play we will be playing the Geelong Footy Club Song as the coffin leaves the church. So if you want to play please be at the church by 1.30pm so we can set-up stands and maybe a quick run through the music.
Please let me know if you want to play so I can bring the correct number of music stands.
For those members that did not know Jack he was the band's conductor when he moved to the peninsula from 1982 to 1991. He also played in and conducted brass bands in Melbourne, and won many solo flugel horn competitions, both state and national, when he was a member of the Victorian Band League.
He was a very good musician and conductor and will be greatly missed.
