Event Details

On Sunday September 24th, 3.30 PM, the Australian Rockhampton Big Band and the Scottish Leith Community Concert Band will give a free joint performance in the Main Hall.

The concert will see Big Band style music as well as traditional Scottish music in what we think is a first and will hopefully give a unique experience.

To name a few titles: Send in the Clowns, Uptown Funk, All about the Bass, Dream a Little Dream and many more. The band is made up of about 20 high school kids and 6 staff members. They perform on a regular basis back in Australia and this concert is part of their third international tour. Director and Conductor is Mr. John Evenhuis.
