Sunshine Community Brass Player Invitation

SCB was established in 1928, originally formed by the workers of the Sunshine Harvester Company. Despite their hall being destroyed by fire in 2006, they have risen from the ashes to reach the mantle of Victorian C Grade State Champions in 2012 and were subsequently elevated to B grade shortly after.

SCB is in a rebuilding phase, having sadly lost some players to university, work and other commitments. With Dr Kevin Cameron on board it is the perfect time to come along to an SCB rehearsal, all players are welcome.

Rehearsals take place Tuesday evenings from 7:30pm, Thomas Hall, 45 Furlong Rd, North Sunshine. For more information call Peter on 0409 147 723.
