We have a busy month ahead for both bands, with two opportunities to see players from Preston and Northern performing at upcoming public events.
This Friday, the 28th of September, a combined band featuring both Preston and Northern players will march through the city at the AFL Grand Final Parade. The band will be leading the West Coast Eagles from the corner of Collins Street and Spring Street, down Wellington Parade to the MCG. For further event details, see the AFL website.
Both bands will also feature in the Victorian Bands League’s Bandstand Sunday concert. This annual event aims to promote banding to the general public through a free concert at Federation Square. Preston and Northern will join bands from across the state in what promises to be a fun day for all involved. Preston will be onstage from 12:35-1:05 and Northern will play from 2:15-2:45.
