After nearly six months of hard work, the WA Fire and Emergency Services Concert Band were very pleased to place second in the A-grade division of the Western Australian Band Association State Championships at UWA.
The end result was quite a credible one coming a strong second against four other top WA A Grade bands. Thank you to all band members for their efforts and congratulations to West Australian Wind Symphony for taking out first prize.
We are now looking forward to preparing for public concerts in Perth and Albany later in the year- stay tuned for more information coming soon!

We are the champions my friends!
The Western Australia Fire & Emergency Services Concert Band are Western Australia’s champion A-Grade concert band for 2016, as a result of the state band championships held over the weekend of 28/29th May. The outstanding result once again followed months of detailed work on the challenging A-Grade test piece Danceries by Kenneth Hesketh, an arrangement of Abide With Me for the slow piece and Liberty Bell for the march piece.

The first few months of 2016 have gone by in what feels like a run of demi-semi-quavers as the Band has participated in a number of events, including the Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service State Championships, a very-soggy ANZAC day march, and the International Firefighters day memorial services at Kings Park. We are now in the final stage of preparations for the State Band Championships on the 29th of May. Feel free to come along and support the band at John Septimus Roe Anglican Community School.
As part of the Mount Lawley Christmas Festival, the community is invited to celebrate with this free community event from 4pm with something for everyone from Live Nativity Play, Food stalls to Free Kid’s Activities.
What better way to end the evening with Carols by Candlelight with Opera Soprano’s and the WA Fire and Emergency Services Concert Band from 7:00pm till 8:15pm. Carols by Candlelight will be held at St Patrick’s Anglican Church Cnr 1st Ave and Beaufort St.
