Our Adult Beginner Music Programme will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year in October. The majority of musicians in the LCCB organisation started their instrument within the last ten years through either the Karingal Concert Band, Turrumburra Concert Band or the Adult Beginner Music Programme. Many of our musicians had never picked up an instrument in their lives while others returned after a (very) long hiatus.

We will be celebrating the achievements of the programmes and the musicians within it on the 28th of October in a concert at Willoughby Uniting Church from 3pm. More information will be included on our Facebook page and this website in coming weeks.
