The exciting news is that David Rowden and the Omega Ensemble will perform at Cooke Park Pavilion tomorrow, 23rd July at 2pm (7pm cancelled).
This is a wonderful opportunity to see David, one of Australia’s finest clarinetists. The concert is an initiative by Music in the Regions. The Omega Ensemble are also playing in Forbes tonight at 7pm at the Forbes Town Hall. Tickets available at musicintheregions.com
If our community wants to hear live performances such as community band music and touring ensembles, we need to be in the audience to support the musicians, and to sustain music in our community. We need to give school students and community members the opportunity to learn or take up an instrument again – there are many people who would like to.
The Parkes Shire Concert Band (PSCB) rehearsals are every Tuesday during school term from 6:30 to 7pm for learners and those picking up the instrument again. New members always welcome. The main band’s rehearsal time is from 7 – 9pm in the Music Room above the Pool Complex in Dalton Street. For further information contact Duncan Clement, PSCB Music Director on email firstname.lastname@example.org or his mobile 0405 035 164.
