“Best of the West” Pre-Nationals Concert

Photos from the ‘Best of the West’ Concert – Showcasing brass band music in Melbourne’s Western Suburbs! Hyde Street Youth Band, Footscray-Yarraville City Band and Western Brass played their hearts out, and Hyde Street and Footscray ran through their repertoire for the National Band Championships over Easter. We’re extremely proud of the long hours the kids have put in over many weeks. An absolute highlight for the kids was the World Premiere of ‘Summit’ written for Hyde Street by Andrew Batterham, and with Andrew in the audience, what could be better! Another highlight was the deeply moving rendition of ‘Siege’ by Jared McCunnie (Western Brass’s MD), the A Grade Brass test piece for the Nationals, and played by Footscray-Yarraville.
