NSW Police Band – It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Mon 16 Nov

The longest standing concert band in Australia returns to Wollongong Town Hall!

Usher in the start of the Christmas season with the consummate ensemble who are regarded as the State Band of NSW.

Star vocalist Belinda Parsons (who recently appeared on the popular Television program “The Voice”) and the NSW Police Band will delight and entertain with a repertoire of traditional carols blended with your favourite contemporary Christmas songs.

Formed in 1895, the NSW Police Force proudly boasts the country’s oldest concert band celebrating 125 years of continual service this year. It is a full-time unit of the NSW Police Force comprising of 32 players, providing musical support to many Royal occasions and Papal visits, as well as prestigious ceremonies for Presidents, Heads of State and dignitaries (from virtually every nation of the world) and Australian sporting teams, Commonwealth and Olympic athletes.

Under the Command of Senior Sergeant Graham Dickman and Director of Music John Saunders the Band fulfills over 200 engagements each year – and their return to Music in the Morning will be an unmissable finale to the program.

What is Music in the Morning?

Music in the Morning is a series that fills the historic Wollongong Town Hall with delightful daytime concerts.

Don’t forget the free morning tea that is served too! Meet your friends before the show for a cuppa, slice of cake and a chat – then sit back and relax as you enjoy a range of musical classics. You won’t be disappointed!

Wheelchair access, mobility assistance and induction hearing loop compatible with T-switch hearing aids are available.
