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, Please note that as from beginning of March 2021 rehearsals will be in the Senior Citizens Centre in Corbett Gardens instead of the Memorial Hall.

Visitors always welcome to rehearsals



March Mania and More!!

 March Mania Poster1

The Southern Highlands Concert Band is pleased to present a celebration of marching music in March Mania and More.
The capacity of music to inspire humans to astonishing feats is best exemplified in the power of march tunes.
This concert will present a number of exciting examples from John Williams to the River Kwai.
These will be presented within the Band’s usual eclectic mix to ensure a fun-filled afternoon for everyone.
Unfortunately, Covid regulations will require you to remain seated during this concert!!
