The Mountains are Alive with The Sound Of Music
The Blue Mountains Youth Band is amongst 23 community brass and concert bands across the state sharing 2018 Community Band Development Grants Program funding from the NSW Government.
It will use its funding of $1000 to fund a skills development day for the band led by professional and experienced tutors, culminating in a performance that will be recorded for training purposes.
Liberal Member of Parliament and Blue Mountains resident Shayne Mallard said, “The Blue Mountains Youth Band is a very much-loved part of our region. To know that they can improve and extend their offering through this funding is fantastic and I look forward to hearing from the band throughout the year.”
Minister for the Arts Don Harwin said that volunteer bands play a great role in building local community spirit across NSW regions, and are a familiar placement in many areas.
“These bands bring together committed and passionate musicians to create the reliable fixtures that we see across so many communities in the state,” Mr Harwin said.
“Investment into skills development, workshops, concerts, recordings and guest appearances helps us to keep this enthusiasm alive, rewarding volunteer dedication to create impassioned music with more excitement than ever.”
