The Northside Concert Band is a community band based in Northern Sydney Australia for adults playing concert band instruments (Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trombone, Euphonium, Baritone, French Horn, Trumpet, Tuba, Percussion etc). We play a wide range of musical styles including classical, jazz, latin, theme tunes (movies, tv shows), marches, modern compositions and more.
We rehearse once a week on Wednesday evenings with the beginner band from 7-8pm and the main band 8-9:30pm at Roseville public school during school term weeks. The band was founded by the amazing Ross Cole who also conducted the band until recently when he retired, at which point our longtime band member and wonderful and experienced conductor Ken Evanoff has taken up the conductor post.
The whole aim is to provide a good musical experience for all the players and also to play in Festivals and at places like The Chatswood Concourse, ARV and Carols at Coogee etc so that we share our love of music and enjoyment with others. We play from grade 2.5 – 5 in the main band and the beginner band plays up to a grade 2.5.
