A few of us stalwart band folks will be holding an INFO STALL at Southern Cross University’s LISMORE Campus today …

Come along & say ‘Hello‘  🙂 … we’ll be pretty obvious in our bright 2017 ‘Street Band’ t-shirts + we may even play a tune or two!  😉

Our friendly LCCB outreach team will be able to answer your enquiries about what to expect from playing with us, or even just chat about music generally.

Oh! & we’ll have some of those snazzy t-shirts* for sale – but you’d better be quick, we’ve nearly sold out.

Upcoming Reunion

Lismore City Concert Band has been around for almost 40 years now, and this year we are celebrating with a reunion.

The event will be on Saturday June 25 from 1.30-4pm, upstairs in the NR Conservatorium concert room.

The Lismore City Concert Band has been running since 1979.

All past members, friends associates are very welcome to come. We’ll be having an afternoon catch-up including a play of some old favorites (which you’re welcome to just watch, or join in on), and then following our reunion event the LCCB will be marching in the Lismore Lantern Parade – which again, anyone is welcome to join us for.

We will be meeting at the Lismore Skate Park at 5.30pm for the march.

Sausage Ensemble: help wanted

How do you cook a great sausage? “Its all in the way you hold the tongs,” says Mark, head chef at the recent sausage sizzle in Master’s car park. Enthusiastically assisted by Greta , Richard and Ellie (photo) plus Wendy and Ben, the team moved a sizable pile of  sausages on the day. But that was just the beginning. We have another sausage gig this coming Sunday (28th Feb) in Lismore Bunnings car park. We would love some assistance, especially around the lunch hour rush – between 11:30 and 2:00pm. Bunnings is busy on the weekend, we expect the sausages to be flying of the hot plate on the day. Covered shoes are required.

Agenda and Motions

Band Enrichment Day (Open to all!)

In some very exciting news Lismore City Concert Band is having a Band Enrichment Day and Charity Concert on Saturday April 2, from 9am-6pm.

The cost is only $18 per participant, and the concert band is providing music scores, tutors, conductors… as well as included morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.

The event is being run thanks to a grant provided by the Lismore City Council as well as the venue generously donated by the Northern Rivers Conservatorium.

It will be held during the day at Conservatorium (Crn Keen st and Magellan st, Lismore), but will finish with an afternoon concert at 5pm Southern Cross University, where participants will donate their time to provide entertainment for the Lismore Relay For Life event.

Adult-poster

The invitation is open to players of ALL ages who play concert band instruments: brass, woodwind and percussion. It is an excellent opportunity for players to increase their band skills and endurance, as well as meet fellow musicians from the region. Throughout the day, players will participate in a range of tutti sessions as well as sectionals facilitated by various music tutors.

Participants will need to provide their own transport to the Conservatorium at the start of the day, and to SCU in the afternoon, where they will perform in front of a substantial audience.

As the Relay for Life event is to be held out of doors, should there be wet weather the contingency plan is to hold the performance in the concert room of the Conservatorium.

If you are interested or want some further information please contact us with any questions or to get a schedule of the day and registration form.

The more participants, the better the day will be. This event is a community driven event and we welcome any and all who are interested, so come and join us for what is looking to be a great day!
