Highlights from the 2023 Abbotsleigh Band Festival

By Lynette Clarke Head of Music November 24, 2023

Congratulations to all the bands who dazzled the audience with their performances at the inaugural Abbotsleigh Band Festival last week.

The Peter Duly Concert Hall came alive with the sounds of Bundarra Band, Junior School Concert Band, Senior School Concert Band, and Symphonic Winds. The festival celebrated musicians of all levels, from students learning their instruments for just 1 or 2 years to more experienced players performing challenging band repertoire.

The grand finale featured the combined massed bands with upwards of 170 performers on stage, delivering a powerful rendition of Rossini’s “William Tell Overture.”

A heartfelt thank you goes to the band teaching team, conductors, and Mrs. Pinter for her organisation of the event.
