Darebin City Brass is a community-based group of approximately 100 musicians who strive to produce quality music and serve the people of Darebin in Melbourne’s Northern suburbs. The three brass bands of Darebin City Brass (Preston Band, Northern Brass and Jack’s Juniors) cater for all ability levels, from beginner, to developing player, to the upper echelon of banding in Australia.
The newest band in our organisation, the Darebin City Jazz Orchestra, is made up of professional and semi-professional musicians who wish to participate in a larger jazz ensemble, with a focus on performing original compositions.
Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, will be the host city for this prestigious event for community brass and concert bands in Australia and overseas. With one of the best climates of any city in Australia, you can be assured of beautiful sunshine in addition to beautiful music from some of the best bands in the southern hemisphere.
