Welcome to the
Mandurah Concert Band
In February 1997, with 18 members, rehearsals began for the concert band which grew to 30 members by June, and played for the opening of the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre. This was the first public performance as the Mandurah Concert Band.
Since then the Band has played for many private and public functions in Mandurah, Rockingham, Fremantle, and Perth including the openings of the Reading Cinemas Mandurah, the Mandurah Train Station and the Perth to Bunbury Highway.
Over the years, Mandurah Concert Band has entered several State Band Festivals and competitions and achieved excellent results in their divisions. The Band was State Champion in 2001 & 2003, runner up in 2009, and won the Len Nisbett Award for best country band in 1999 and 2009.
In 2013, the band performed at the Yamaha National Band Championships.
The Band came 2nd Place in all pieces performed. A fantastic result against 7 other bands competing in the same division.
If anyone is interested in joining, supporting, sponsoring or booking the band, please look at CONTACT US page for all details.
"The Mandurah Concert Band has recently had their equipment trailer refurbished as the top was leaking badly and all rusted out. Members decided to overhaul the base and make some adjustments for size, then engaged South West Trailers to build the new top on the trailer. A partnership grant was received from Alcoa, which assisted greatly in the refurbishment.
The Band expresses their wholehearted thanks to Alcoa for their support in this project, which now allows the band to transport all their equipment in safety and good condition for many years to come.”
