    Conductor: Ian Thorpe

    Assistant Conductor: Matthew Lee

    A Concert Band is made up of woodwind, brass, percussion and string bass players. Concert bands, as the name implies, were formed to entertain at concerts. The CSM concert band is a family oriented ensemble which is aimed at giving players of all ages the opportunity to play the richly rewarding and entertaining concert band repertoire. In the course of the year the CSM Concert Band will perform a huge variety of repertoire from classic masterpieces through to more contemporary popular medleys. Players normally would need to be playing at around a grade 4 level or above to join this group.
