With only one rehearsal left before they represent the city at the Victorian State Band Championships in Ballarat this weekend (August 16th & 17th), the Mount Gambier City Band is working feverishly on putting the finishing touches to their anticpated contest stage performance.
The local band will be up against seven other bands in their division, including the current National and Victorian Champions; Darebin City - Northern Brass. With a strengthened cornet section since their very close second placing at the South Australian Band Championships last year, the band is in a good place to compete with their opposition, especially in the performance of the test piece. Gordon Langford's "Sinfonietta", by which all bands are measured against each other.
Musical Director Jarrod Harrison has been rehearsing the band and various instrumental sections hard for the past two months.The City band also hopes to gain an edge in the points tally through the performance of their other three pieces, which includes a hymn, a stage march and a concert item.
In an exciting development for the band movement and local supporters, a live internet video stream of the Victorian Band Championships can be viewed at http://brassbanned.com/. The local band's division is scheduled to start on Sunday morning.
