Manningham Concert BandThe Manningham Concert Band is one of Victoria's oldest concert bands.
We arose from a public meeting in July 1974 with the first rehearsal held at Templestowe Technical School in September of that year. The group officially became "The Doncaster and Templestowe Municipal Band"in 1976, and from 1978 performed as a brass band. From 1983 we adopted the concert band format, and in 2008 moved into our new rehearsal and performance space at The Pines Learning and Activity Centre in Doncaster East.
We perform five major concerts annually: Spring Favourites, Autumn Favourites, Winter Favourites, our Gala Concert and as the musical accompaniment to the Manningham Carols by Candlelight. We also regularly perform at Citizenship ceremonies, on Memorial days and at Festivals, Functions and Events by request.
We are community-focussed and do not hold auditions. Our repertoire is varied and includes jazz, popular works, serious band repertoire and light classical pieces. Our members range from school students to retirees and our Musical Director is Andrew van Gemert.
If you play brass, woodwind or percussion and would like to join us and then come along to a rehearsal.
Rehearsals are on Tuesday nights 7.30pm-10.00pm
