Annual Band Concert re-scheduled
30 March 2018
We are delighted to be able to announce that the annual Twilight Concert with Canberra Brass has been re-scheduled. It will now be a midday Concert on Sunday April 22nd starting at 1.00 pm. Soloist Katie De Veau and MC David Kilby have kindly 'signed up' again, and the Band is keen to go for this tenth anniversary occasion.
Even better news. The museum's latest and most ambitious Exhibition will have been launched by Yerrabi MLA Michael Pettersson the day before, at 10.00 am (all welcome!). Concert patrons will therefore be able to take in the Exhibition - 'A tale of two villages' - as well as the Concert. The Centre will be open from 10.00am on Sunday, so the Exhibition can be viewed either before or after the Concert.
The Concert will be lively mixture of classical (Bach, Brahms, Handel), popular hits (Bohemian Rhapsody,a Beatles medley, John Denver's 'Country Roads), a hymn, and of course, marches. Canberra Brass will feature an item composed by British band composer Maurice Rayner composed 'in honour of the New Capital City of Australia', titled simply 'Canberra'.
The Concert is free, but it is a major annual fundraiser for the Hall School Museum and Heritage Centre. There will be opportunities to support the Centre via a raffle and a bucket collection. Raffle prizes have been generously donated by a number of Hall businesses as well as sponsors, Barnett Lilley and Associates. The venue and facilities are disability accessible, and refreshments will be available - before and during the Concert.
Please tell friends and neighbours of the change of time - and bring them along with you!
