The Club Taree Community Concert Band will give a concert at the Taree High School Hall at 2pm this Sunday, September 15, to raise money for new music, instruments and to service current instruments.
The entertaining program includes music from Aladdin, Star Wars, The Lion King, The Planets by Gustav Holst, movie music by Hans Zimmer including Pirates of the Caribbean, Candle in the Wind, and The Magnificent Seven, and much more.
The Taree Salvation Army Junior Band will also be performing.
Tickets are $10 and children are free, available at the door. There will be a raffle and a music quiz also.
The Club Taree Community Concert Band was established more than 20 years ago and this is the first band fundraiser in more than 10 years.
The band performs in Tuncurry, Gloucester, Wingham, and Taree, and is the marching band for the Anzac Day Parade in Taree.
Over the years they have raised funds for Farmers Friends Drought Relief, Coopernook Hall committee, a hospital in Zambia, the building and equipping of a school in Zambia, Fred Hollows foundation, Ronald McDonald house and the indigenous community in Arnhem Land.
The musicians also donate their time to provide music at Christmas carols events in Tinonee and Coopernook.
The concert band welcomes new members.
"They do not have to be able to play or even own an instrument," said publicity officer Terry Stanton.
"We have instruments, and we can help them learn. We should very much like to have someone come to play bass clarinet and we'd like a couple more flute players too."
