Hi all …
Our Musical Director, Ben van Kleef is having a few weeks off from conducting the Lismore City Concert Band whilst he focuses on this weekend’s performances by Lismore Symphony Orchestra, which he is yet again conducting.
Laurie Green, Cornettist/Trumpeter, Teacher & Bandmaster/Conductor of several bands (including the Ballina Shire Concert Band & the Galaxy Jazz Band <— formerly known as the Northern Rivers Big Band), has stepped in to fill Ben’s shoes during this period. (Laurie ALSO plays with the Lismore Symphony Orchestra.)
The Band has already had one session with Laurie at the helm & is benefiting from experiencing the perspectives that Laurie brings with him. Many thanks, Laurie.
