Festivals and Celebrations

4 Dec 2021 Once Only Event

The sound of Christmas is arriving to Ballarat’s CBD with music from the Ballarat Memorial Concert Band. Come and enjoy one of their performances.

The Ballarat Memorial Concert Band started in 1920 as the Ballarat Memorial Soldiers Sailors and Airman Band. They have over 100 years of continuous history in Ballarat (their first performance was at the opening of the Arch of Victory).

At inception, they were a Brass Band and restricted to Returned Soldiers and often in demand by festival organizers in and around Ballarat. In 1987 membership was opened to all musicians and the band was developed into a Concert Band with a wider range of instruments. The name of the band was also then changed to the Ballarat Memorial Concert Band (BMCB).

The Ballarat Memorial Concert Band, is a non-profit community organization and open to all who wish to contribute to playing music. The band plays an eclectic mix of music including marches, classical, jazz and popular styles.

The band always encourages new members of any standard – for the Senior Band and especially into Development Band program.
