USA Tour Update

Posted: 21st November 2017

By: Murray

The touring ensemble recently held its second last rehearsal before embarking on our trip to California in early January and to say the band sounds great is a big understatement!

This is a milestone in the history of our band I believe as never before have Camden Community Band members been represented on the world stage (main stage at Disneyland) our opening and closing numbers will be conducted by our own Musical Director.

A lot of effort and expense has gone into the preparation of this trip by those attending including many visits to Chatswood for rehearsal, uniforms, all the tour costs and more but the value of working with other musicians, the fellowship and the whole experience so far has been of great value. The tour team has also appreciated the support given by the band with their recent concert attendance, financial assistance and the camaraderie within our ensemble.

January 6th will be our departure date, returning on the 19th in time for Australia Day. For those interested, the complete itinerary is located on our member’s page.

 

Musically yours, Murray Bishop.
