Hear the Band's Yamaha Performance

The Mt Colah Concert Band took to the stage at the Dickson's Yamaha Band Festival during the last week of term after much practice and preparation.

The 10-day festival, held at the Chatswood Concourse Concert Hall showcases dozens of primary and high school bands from throughout Sydney.

Conducted by Matt Dalziel, our students gave an impressive performance of three pieces: Talons of Fire, Of Distant Peaks and the theme song from Sesame Street.

For many of the young musicians who joined the Concert Band this year, it was their first performance in a festival.

Adjudicator Phil Molloy gave the band a short workshop, helping them to finesse the balance between the melody and accompanying instruments.

He praised the band's performance, especially their rendition of Sesame Street.

"It had a great feel and was lots of fun, " he said.

The festival has finished and below is a link where you can hear the band and the adjudicator's notes.
