The final concert in the Christ Church Concert Series will feature the Daylesford Community Brass Band with their concert, “Beyond” on Saturday 19 November.

Beyond, is a celebration of music’s power of transportation. Concert goers are invited to come on a journey with the band through space, time, and the most intimate of destinations: ourselves. Beyond draws inspiration from film and television, as well as literary works that have touched many of us in our formative years.

Brass banding in Daylesford has a long history, with the first band being formed in 1862. There have been many iterations of the band, the most recent being the formation of the current band (originally known as the Daylesford Municipal Brass Band) in 1962. Now known as the Daylesford Community Brass Band, they proudly provide entertainment and musical education around the Daylesford area.

Current members range in age from early twenties to eighties. Banding frequently becomes a life-long passion, and several members have been members of the band for more than 50 years. They are very much a family band, with partners, children and parents joining to share the joy of music making.

With 160 year history in this community the band is much loved and a feature at all key public events from street parades to annual war commemoration services, Christmas, Town Hall themed events and much more. This relationship with the public drives the band’s commitment to performing and honours its long commitment to our community.
