Shepparton Brass and Wind perform at Tallygaroopna

By Tara Whitsed

The Shepparton Brass and Wind band will venture to Tallygaroopna this weekend to perform as part of the Riverlinks In Your Town series.

Shepparton Brass and Wind secretary Leona Gibbs said this year the band would play songs with an Australian theme including The Man From Snowy River, An Australian Festival and I Am Australian with a guest choir.

‘‘Audience members will recognise many of the tunes throughout the concert,’’ Ms Gibbs said.

‘‘Shepparton Brass and Wind have been performing the In Your Town concerts for a few years.

‘‘It’s a wonderful initiative by Riverlinks to bring performing groups to the towns surrounding Greater Shepparton, and make use of the local halls around the region.

‘‘The audience are welcome to join us for a light afternoon tea following the concert.’’

The concert will be on Sunday from 2.30pm at Tallygaroopna Memorial Hall on Victoria St.

Entry costs a gold coin donation at the door; no tickets required.

A second concert will be on Sunday, April 14 from 2.30pm at the Murchison Community Centre.
