Next Concert: A Festival of Music!
March Concert with Brisbane Water Brass
Music of the War Years at Club Five Dock
We had a blast performing this concert once again, especially on November the 11th. We hope all those who attended had as much fun watching as we did performing! And thanks to Dallas Watts for his collaboration with this concert, and sharing his beautiful baritone voice with us.
We even resurrected the Andrews Sisters for the occasion!
Remembrance Day 2018
Leichhardt Celebrity Brass were once more in attendance this year at the Loyalty Square Centotaph for the Remembrance Day service commemorating 100 years since the signing of the Armistice which would end the World War 1 hostilities. As always, it was an auspicious occasion with a large crowd in attendance.
Music of the War Years
Our first Music of the War Years Concert was held on Sunday the 4th of November at Petersham RSL. It was a great success, with great wartime tunes, visuals, singalongs, a brilliant guest vocalist in Dallas Watts, as well as a surprise visit from the 'Andrews Sisters'!
Mr Dallas Watts (baritone)
For our Armistice Centenary Concerts this year we were delighted to welcome Dallas Watts as a guest vocalist. Dallas performed the haunting 'Jerusalem', the hymn used to give hope to the soldiers fighting on the Western Front in World War One. He also performed the beautiful 'Requiem for a Soldier', the theme song from the television series 'Band of Brothers' and arranged for our band by Dennis Williams (Solo Horn). Apart from his solo performances, Dallas did a superb job in leading the many sing-along medleys.
We are now very busy performing at Citizenship Ceremonies at three different venues! Once a month we welcome new citizens either at Leichhardt Town Hall, Ashfield Town Hall or Petersham Town Hall.
