More than 70 members of Marion’s award-winning brass bands are putting the final touches to a one-off event that will see musicians show off their dance moves during a performance of Michael Jackson’s hit song Thriller at the Marion Cultural Centre on September 27.
Other feature segments include an all-action rhythmic dance routine, a string ensemble performance by band members, solos and Celtic harp.
Bandology will bring together the senior Marion City Band, D grade band, Warriparinga Brass, and training band, Heaven Brass, for a two-hour plus musical extravaganza.
Musical director and conductor Veronica Boulton said the event had been put together to highlight the diverse talents of the musicians.
“Bandology will highlight the many abilities of our members and include an appearance by Cornetballs, the band’s netball team, solos from members studying at the Elder Conservatorium of Music and some great dance routines,” Veronica said.
“The event will also celebrate the success of Warriparinga Brass in winning the D grade competition at the Nation Band Championships in April this year.
“We’re really excited about the show, which is for all ages, and should delight brass band fans and attract new supporters.”
Bandology will be held at the Marion Cultural Centre, 287 Diagonal Rd, Oaklands Park from 2pm on Sunday, September 27. To book, call the Box Office on 8375 6855.
Tickets cost $15, or $12 with a concession, and children aged five and under are free.
