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



Our “Incredible”concert features music inspired by people, things, concepts and ideas that are larger than life. Music has the ability to capture the feelings of wonder and awe that humans feel when confronted by that which is beyond our normal understanding of the world; and, in the hands of skilful composers, the music itself becomes…incredible.

Much of the music in this concert will be drawn from the scores of motion pictures. Movies such as Superman, The Incredibles and the James Bond series, have provided incredible soundtracks which have gained a life outside their original context. Music from other areas of composition, however, is well represented, with works by Gustav Holst, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stephen Schwartz amongst the many highlights.

Come join the band and special guest vocalist, Keva Abotomy, for an afternoon of stirring music that is simply…”Incredible”.
