Port Stephens Community Band


Port Stephens Community Band

Our mission is to provide the means through which musicians of all ages can meet in an atmosphere of fun and co-operation to develop and express their musical abilities for the enjoyment of the Port Stephens Community, and for themselves.

The Port Stephens Community Band was founded in 1995 and is a non-profit organisation. It meets to rehearse at the CWA hall, Gowrie Street, Nelson Bay, from 6.30 to 8.30 pm each Tuesday evening during school terms.

Whether you are a young student player, an older person who is currently playing a musical instrument, or someone who has played a musical instrument in the past but is not playing at present, you are all welcome to join.

The Band aims to promote the enjoyment of music and fun of learning and playing a musical instrument. It offers a means by which players can make music together, entertain the Port Stephens community, and socialise in an atmosphere of friendship. Less experienced players develop their instrumental skills under the mentorship of the more experienced players and the Band’s Artistic Director.

If you think you might like to play in the Band, you are most welcome to come to a rehearsal to listen to the music and decide if you would like to become a member.

Band members pay an annual membership fee, and a fee at the beginning of each term. This is used to meet the running costs of the Band such as the purchase of music, band equipment, and the uniform for performances.

The Band owns a number of musical instruments which are available for hire if required, and all music is supplied.

If you enjoy making music, and making new friends, come along and join in with other music lovers.
