Congratulations to our Tambourine Bay Winds representatives (Christina, Maria, Lachlan, Dave, Yuki, Greta, Toni, Kaori!) in the ensemble contest last Saturday (17th May)
We were awarded 2nd and 3rd places in a very close contest behind a brass quintet from St George Brass Band.
Both of our 2 quartets played at a very high standard against some tough competition with a stand out aspect being the precise tuning and intonation across both quartets, and something that was highly spoken of by the adjudicator Mr. Anthony Timmins.
Well done to all who participated – a lot of hard work went into preparing for this contest, which was a first ensemble competition for most and first competition ever for some.

Today the LCCB Organisation announces the renaming of its senior ensemble as the ‘Cameraygal Wind Symphony’. In its new period of growth as a flagship ensemble and in its musical ambassadorial position amongst the community bands of Australia and potentially internationally, the band and its new Music Director David Worrall, have decided to rebrand the band accordingly.

The Lane Cove Concert Band organisation is a unique community group in Sydney with a proud 50 year history and now boasting 6 ensembles with a membership of 140 people. It is important that the flagship ensemble represents this organisation within the small but specialised world of wind bands in Australia.” explains David. “Many similar bands are adopting a brand name similar to ensembles in the USA, Britain and Europe. The name ‘Cameraygal’ is an important link to our indigenous people of the Lane Cove area so this is an essential name to maintain.”

The Cameraygal Wind Symphony will be proudly supporting the Lane Cove Council, RSL Club and community at ANZAC Day this year, in the Plaza at 7.30am and can be heard in concert at St Stephen’s Anglican Church Willoughby on 15 June and 21 September. Details at www.lccb.org.au

The Lane Cove Concert Band organization is starting another adult beginner programme so if you missed out last time now is your chance to make up for lost time.

The programme will commence with a term of beginner musicianship tailored for potential concert band members who have NO PRIOR MUSICAL EXPERIENCE. Participants will also be expected to commence individual lessons on their chosen band instrument with a private music tutor. In subsequent terms participants will experience more practical application of the theory learnt in Term 1 and enjoy group rehearsals with like-minded adults keen to learn music for the first time.  People with prior musical experience who want to learn a band instrument should also attend the information evening on Monday 3rd February and will be able to join the programme in Term 2.

Our latest adult beginners band, started in February 2011, has now been formally named.
The band will now be known as the Karingal Concert Band.

This band has come a long way in a very short time and we look forward to their first public performance on the 10th September in their combined indoor concert with the Turrumburra Concert Band.
