About Us

Information for members

The City of Adelaide Concert Band meets and rehearses on Thursday evenings. Rehearsals are from 7.30 pm – 9.30 pm, with a short break half way through. Our players range in both musical ability and age. Being a community band, we promote the playing of various musical styles in a relaxed and friendly environment. There are minimal membership requirements.

Public performances

We play mostly within the City of Adelaide council area, about once a month, usually on Sunday afternoons.


The band is an incorporated association and is managed by a committee of elected members.
The committee meets on the last Thursday of each month (prior to rehearsals). The AGM is held in August/September of each year after a scheduled rehearsal.

Fees + uniforms

Membership fees

Currently, membership fees are $60 per annum or $35 for full time-students, concession card holders and couples. There is a refundable $50 security deposit ($30 concession) on borrowed band equipment (uniform, music folder, etc).

Members also need to purchase a polo shirt through the band at $30, see uniform below.

Uniform and equipment 

Our formal uniform consists of a grey blazer embroidered with the City of Adelaide coat of arms, an official City of Adelaide tie or scarf (borrowed from the band). Members need to supply their own black trousers / skirts, black shoes and white shirt/blouse, or for some events such as the Fringe a black shirt/blouse. Our casual gigs uniform comprises a cyan polo shirt which must be purchased through the band for consistency. This has no band markings on it and remains the property of the member.
Members are asked to bring their own music stand to rehearsals although a small number of stands are available in the band’s storeroom. 
Members are required to have their own instruments, however a small number of instruments (mainly brass) are available to be borrowed by members, as approved by committee.

Setting up & Pack up

We ask everyone to arrive by at least 7:15pm on Thursday evenings to assist with the setting up the hall, for example with chairs and percussion equipment, so that we can be ready for tuning and warm up exercises at 7:30pm.  Help is also needed to pack away after rehearsals.


Primary Contacts
If members are unable to attend a rehearsal or a performance, they are asked to contact the President or Secretary as soon as possible, by telephone or by email.

Band Communication
From time to time members will receive information and newsletters by e-mail (or hard copy if there is no e-mail contact). General announcements are also made at the commencement of rehearsals. To contact the Secretary or the President, see the Contacts page. 
Social Gatherings
We like to support socialisation, especially during a mid-rehearsal break, after performances and at other social functions.
Family members and friends are welcome and we appreciate their assistance, for example at our annual fund-raising concert.
