Brass Band Newcastle (BBN) has been formed from some of the best brass player across Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast with special guests from Sydney, under the baton of conductor Conrad Curry. The concert is happening at 2pm on Sunday 30 June at the Newcastle Conservatorium of Music, Newcastle.  You will enjoy the afternoon as BBN takes you through a musical journey of Brass Music that was played by a small group of BHP Steelworkers in the 1920’s. In 1924 the Newcastle Steelworks Brass Band travelled to Britain to take part in musical contests, culminating in winning the British Empire Champions. What a shock to the Brits that a brass band from the colonies would or could win this prestigious competition! 100 years on, come and listen to the music and narration of their journey. All proceeds to Dementia Australia.
