On Saturday the 3rd of October, Lismore South Public celebrated its centenary and Lismore City Concert Band were invited to augment the ceremony, starting it with a stirring rendition of Waltzing Matilda.
The audience was an enthusiastic amalgamation of past students, parents, teachers and community members. After hearing three of the past headmasters reminisce, watching the planting of a commemorative tree, and seeing the P&C give the school a new banner, the Lismore City Concert Band played the ceremony out with the very Aussie Click Go the Shears. This was followed by a further 40 minute set of our repertoire easing from the ceremony into generational mingling reunions (dating back to 1926) and general appreciation of the historical displays.
The band was sounding particularly good, and we received several compliments on the overall tone, and versatile repertoire.
Thank you to Lismore South Public for having us, it was an excellent day.
