On Friday 24th March, Band Association President Jeff Markham
visited our band rehearsal (and had a 'sit in' of course)
to make a presentation of the
APRA /AMCOS certificate, for which we were the very first band in NSW
(and Australia according to Jeff) to sign up for and receive.

The certificate was presented to our Librarian Iris Wright.
Iris is our 'legend' for knowing what and when to photocopy anything.

We can't live without her.
Thank  you Iris we all appreciate the work you do for us.

ELA AKYOL – Most Improved Player 2014

CITY OF WOLLONGONG BRASS BAND

SPECIAL FEATURE: FOR THE FEBRUARY EDITION OF THE "MUSIC STAND".

ELA AKYOL – Most Improved Player Overall for 2014
Ela, now 14 years old commenced learning to play the tenor horn at our own “Muisc in Schools Programme” at Wollongong Primary School in 2009 at age 8 years.

                           leanne-ela--des-wo

After having group lessons during school terms only, Ela proved to be a dedicated and determined young girl and subsequently was promoted into the City of Wollongong Junior Brass Band in November 2009 aged 8-1/2.
Improvement was very noticeable once Ela started attending the junior brass band so much so, she asked her mum if she could have private lessons which then commenced in 2010 with one of our own band tutors.
After a period of time, Ela decided she would like to attend the Junior Wind Band rehearsals which she did, playing alto saxophone parts on the tenor horn.
After two years Ela was really enjoying both bands and asked if she could play a cornet in the Junior Wind Band and still play tenor horn in the Junior Brass Band.
Ela's request was granted and she was given a cornet, with which she also improved in leaps and bounds.
At our 2014 Christmas Party, Ela was awarded the “Most improved Player” not only in just one of our bands,
but was selected by the two Junior M/D.'s (unbeknown to each other).
This has never happened before and possibly not again for one member on two different instruments by two different M.D's in the same year.


 2014 AWARDS:

JACK TOUGHER MEMORIAL PERPETUAL TROPHY :- Most improved player - Brass Band (Tenor Horn)

TARA FERMOR PERPETUAL TROPHY:-                         Most improved player – Wind Band (cornet).

CONGRATULATIONS   ELA - keep up the good work we are proud of your achievements.
