Or just the one will do. And with around forty (possibly plus) members, there is nothing small about us. Something which has been maintained throughout the time I've been a member of the band (around eight or nine years). That's pretty impressive and a considerable achievement within itself. But then when you consider the band had been going for years before that, it becomes something else all together.
Speaking of time and how it passes by, it's hard to believe that there's only one more rehearsal until our annual concert. This year it is Back to the Hits and will be celebrating 30 years of Armadale City Concert Band. Like I said, a remarkable achievement. The amount of music that has been rehearsed and performed over the years. The amount of time that has been put in from our players, our committee and our supporters. The conductors, permanent and guest. Without the efforts of so many people, coming together and making things happen, there would be no band, let alone one that has been around for 30 years. So to everyone who has contributed over the years, in whatever way, thank you so much. And we hope to see you at the concert and to continue being part of ACCB's history.
We've got one more rehearsal to smash it out and put on one hell of a show. Because we want to celebrate everything that is great about this organisation and a huge part of that is the music. And the people. It's going to be an incredible evening of fun (and no doubt laughter. That's just what happens when the band gets together) accompanied by some of our favourite pieces from over the years, celebrating members past and present.
This big band is concert ready.
