A Night with The Champions

A Night with The Champions

The Pine Rivers State High School Band, conducted by Barrie Gott, celebrates the school’s 50th Year in a combined concert with the most accomplished Australian Brass ensemble of all time—The Brisbane Excelsior Band conducted by Howard Taylor.

The Brisbane Excelsior Band earned the right to call itself Champion Band through its success in competition at both National and International levels. It has been invited on several occasions to travel to Europe and has done so on two occasions and also represented Australia at the famous Chinese New Year celebrations in Hong Kong before a live audience of 400,000 and a television coverage of 180 million people.

This once in a lifetime opportunity should not be missed and it is all happening in the School Auditorium at the Pine Rivers State High School.

Where: Pine Rivers High School Auditorium
When: 28th March 2014
Time: 7pm sharp
Entry: Free

Remember its 170 seats only so be early. Refreshments served after the performance for a small fee.

*A free event to kick of the Christmas season*

The Salvation Army Carindale, in conjunction with Belmont State School, is set to once again present ‘Belmont Carols on the Oval’ in 2013. This annual event is to be held at Belmont State School Oval on Sunday 8th December. ‘Belmont Carols on the Oval’ is set to include special guests such as Blindside Quartet, Brisbane Excelsior Band, Adam Lopez and Iain Henderson, along with a fun filled sideshow alley, great food and a firework spectacular to end the night in style.

This year, ‘Belmont Carols on the Oval’ are proud to feature local artists and community groups as part of the pre-show entertainment line-up, starting at 5.00pm. This includes such local talent as Blindside Quartet, an emerging a-capella group from Brisbane, and the famous Brisbane Excelsior Band, the most successful brass band this country has ever seen. There will also be fun to be found for all ages in the sideshow alley boasting jumping castles, giant inflatable slides, market place, face painting, baby animal farm, BBQ, fairy floss and much more.

The night only gets better with the main Carols event starting at 7.00pm, featuring Adam Lopez (Guinness World Record Holder for largest vocal range), and young emerging Queensland Opera tenor Iain Henderson. Hear carols performed and played by The Carindale Salvation Army band and choir, and feel free to sing along. The night concludes with a cracker of a fireworks display!

This FREE event is open to all ages, so grab a picnic rug or chair, and get yourself down to the Belmont State School oval to enjoy a night of festive fun under the stars.
