2013

2013

First up for 2013 was the fundraising Sausage sizzle at Bunnings, Cannon Hill. Thank you to the members who were able to assist so early in the year. We raised $1300.00. Thank you to Bunnings. On the same day we also received a grant from the Queensland Government's Gambling Community Grants Fund of $35,000.00 and, another grant from the Jupiter's Casino Grant Fund of $34600.00. These funds will greatly assist instrument and other equipment purchases for both our Brisbane based bands and our Gold Coast Based bands.

First gig for the year now done, Tree Tops RSL Nursing Home 17/2/13.

In march we again put on a fund raising concert to support the Red Cross Flood appeal, $800.00 was raised. Talent for the Coast and QSB did a repeat performance for Seeton College at their camp at Joyner. The Bayside Youth Band played at the Manly West SS fete and the next day, did their first marching Gig at the Melanoma Awareness march.

April is ANZAC month and this year another milestone was reached in that we were able to participate in the Brisbane city ANZAC Day Parade for the first time. Two days later we were again in the Ipswich Festival parade.

May kicked of with another great performance by the Bayside Youth Band, this time at the West End markets. QSB and QMIHTB again spent a weekend at the Emu Gully Air and Land Spectacular.

In June , QMIHTB again performed for the UQ Ruby Club whilst July saw the Youth band returning to the Manly markets and QMIHTB & QSB again spending the weekend in Wondai for the Reserve Forces/National Service remembrance day. This was followed by being in James Morrison's World Biggest Orchestra.

August opened with the Youth Band performing at Fort Lytton. Significantly, our beginner/first year students made their first performance for the year. A week later all QSHBA was at the EKKA. QSB played for the Long Tan Day Service at Darling Point and BYB finished off the month at the Bayside Arts and Music festival.

September saw QMIHTB return to the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers but this time as the "Star Wars" Band in support of the Redback Garrison, 501 Legion (Vader's 1st)

October was a busy busy month. Firstly, all of our bands and the City of Brisbane Pipe Band went to Nanango for the annual Mardi Gras, then with Talent for the Coast, the senior marching band went to Surfers' Paradise  to be in the Super V8s parade, Finally all bands again participated in the Manly Halloween Parade.

November was spent converting the repertoires to Christmas music. However we did put on a primary school student one day workshop. Approx 80 students attended this workshop.

1st up in December was the Blue care "Carols Under the Stars" which because of rain was moved indoors. Next was the Nazareth House Carols. During the Christmas period we also sent a small group to do a quick demo performance to assist with the Booval Music School's recruiting and also provided a bugler and piper for the (QLD) Proclamation Day celebrations at Newstead House. We again held our end of year awards/Christmas dinner. This year the recipients were Senior Attendance: Jordan; Youth Attendance: Tracey; Drum Corps Attendance: Hannah R; Special Award: Jeffrey.

The year ended on a high note when QSHBA re-activated the Bayside Carols during which we also performed with members from Yellow Cabs Bayside Brass, Wynnum Salvation Army Band, Bayside Youth Choir & Dolphin Studio Choir.
