About Us


The Southern Highlands Concert Band is a community organisation which was formed with the support of Wingecarribee Shire Council in 1985 and currently has a playing membership of more than forty musicians of widely varying ages.

The central aim is twofold: to provide quality music to complement the many civic and social events within and beyond the Southern Highlands, and to make available a medium for musicians of all ages to enjoy and develop their musical abilities.

The band performs regularly at both outdoor and indoor venues and presents a regular series of public concerts.

Membership enquires are welcome from players of wind and percussion instruments and should be directed initially to the band Secretary, or other contacts shown below. This may be done at any time via telephone or email, or in person at any rehearsal.


Rehearsals are held at 7:15pm on Wednesday evenings during school terms at the Bowral Memorial Hall, Bendooley Street, Bowral.

Visitors always welcome to rehearsals

The great theme of Love has inspired composers and performers throughout the ages, and this concert presents a broad selection of items sure to delight our audience. Through film music, popular songs, romantic originals and some offerings from the classical world, the band will explore a range of attitudes from the hopelessly sentimental through to the more cynical views of love in the age of social media. You may not agree that love is all we need…but where would we be without it?

Regretfully due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this concert has been cancelled
