2016 – Onwards and Upwards

Hi everybody,

Well we’re already well into 2016, and it’s shaping up to be another exciting year for the Ballarat Municipal Brass Band.

2015 was another fun and successful year for the Band. After our strong performance at the VBL State Championships at South Street, the Band went on to perform at a number of community events and fundraisers, before finishing the year with our annual trip to Mt Gambier for the Blue Lake Brass Band Festival, where we won the C Grade contest this year, and of course our regular appearance at Meredith Music Festival.

Here are some snaps from the second half of the year:

The Band has recently resumed rehearsals at our newly refurbished band room at 212 Ripon Street Sth.

Be sure to keep an eye on our calendar for details of rehearsals and upcoming gigs and contests. We always welcome new members, so just pop in and introduce yourself if you’re keen to be a part of the action. Otherwise, we hope to see you in the audience at one of our shows in 2016!
