2018 starts with our annual Fringe extravaganza, this year we are At the Tonys featuring the wonderful talents of David Polain, Mat Noble, and Melissa McCaig, who bring us the best of Broadway. 

We are very excited to present 'Sunburnt Country', our final concert of 2018 which is a focus on Australian female contributions to wind band music, directed for the first time by Veronica Boulton.

In between our repertoire ranges from European chamber music to twentieth century movie masterpieces, but our primary passion is presenting the best new and original wind music to you. 
We invite you to see something you love, but also something that will challenge you to think or hear differently.
