We welcome players of woodwind, brass and percussion instruments. As a community ensemble, Unley Concert Band does not audition new players, but much of the repertoire is at AMEB grade five standard or above.

In particular, we are currently seeking percussion, French horn, oboe, clarinet and tuba players.

If you are interested in joining the band, please email our Secretary.

Rehearsals

We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7.30-9.30 in the Unley Town Hall (Oxford St, Unley). Players are expected to arrive by 7.15 pm to help set up the hall. There are approximately 40 rehearsals during the year and we always take a break over Christmas/New Year.

Fees

Band members pay $100 per annum or $60 per annum for students and concession holders. If you join partway through the year, speak to the Treasurer about the possibility of paying a pro rata amount.

Uniform

The band’s uniform consists of:

  • Band shirt (purchased by members)
  • Black trousers
  • Black shoes and socks
  • Band hat (for marching and outdoor performances, provided by the band)

Details about how to purchase a band shirt are provided to new members.

Marching

All members of the band are encouraged to march with Unley, regardless of their level of experience. You will need a lyre for your instrument. The band’s Drum Major and Deputy Drum Majors will provide training for all new players.
