Christmas In Ballarat – Music from City Of Ballarat Brass Band

Locals and visitors alike will be well entertained by the City of Ballarat Municipal Brass Band as they perform in Ballarat’s CBD in the lead up to Christmas.

The City of Ballarat Municipal Brass Band was formed in November 1900 and has a rich 121-year history. It was previously known as Bulch’s Model Brass Band from 1887 to 1900. The band currently has a junior training band with more than 30 members.

The City of Ballarat Brass Band has been providing music and entertainment to the citizens of Ballarat for over 100 years – Band concerts at the Gardens or in the lower part of Sturt Street, Parades, Church Fairs, Band Contests, ANZAC Day ceremonies, etc.

Thousands of musicians have played in the band and scores of famous musical directors (Bandmasters) have directed its fortunes.

The Band plays all types of music from the classics to jazz and popular music of the day, and of course, the foot-tapping music that is heard in Street Parades.

Come and enjoy one of their concerts. Bring a chair and a sun hat, and sit and do as the citizens of Ballarat have been doing for over a hundred years. Enjoy the music.
