Queensland Wind and Brass
Queensland Wind and Brass is getting organised for our first rehearsal of 2015, which will be Tuesday 27th January. There's still a few positions available (in particular, trumpet, trombone and oboe), if you're interested in playing with QWAB, please see the membership information below. QWAB has an exciting year for 2015, with 3 major concerts in the Old Museum Building, and several concerts in the Queen St mall booked.
Our first concert for 2015 "An Australian Story" will feature a piece commissioned by QWAB to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the landing of the ANZACs, in World War 1, in 1915. The piece "First Man Ashore" is a tribute to the first man to set foot on the Gallipoli beaches on the morning of 25 April, 1915. 9th Battalion’s, Lt. Duncan Chapman, was that man, according to the official war correspondent with the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) troops and who was present at the Gallipoli landings, C.E.W. Bean. The piece has been written by Australian composer Graham Lloyd.
