Local Bands Awarded NSW Government Funding

Local bands received $2700 in NSW Government funding to further development their performance skills and musicianship, Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott said today.

“Castle Hill RSL Youth Wind Orchestra and The Hills Music Academy produce fantastic performances that are appreciated by the whole community, so they’re very deserving on these funds,” Mr Elliott said.

“These funds will allow Castle Hill RSL Youth Wind Orchestra to attract new players to the band and promote performance opportunities, while The Hills Music Academy will hold a “Last Night At The Proms” concert at the Castle Hill RSL Club, with the Castle Hill Pipes and Drums as special guests.

Deputy Premier and Minister for the Arts Troy Grant said the NSW Government is proud to support community bands which play a vital role in nurturing talented musicians across NSW.

“These Community Band Development Grants will help bands expand their skills, gain new audiences and promote their activities,” he said.

“The grants are administered by the peak organising body for community and school brass and wind bands, the Band Association of NSW, on behalf of the NSW Government.”
