After a few quiet years, the Queensland Services Heritage Band started 2022 with tentative steps, gradually building momentum and bursting into a busy year filled with events and festivals.

QSHBA’s Light Horse Band proudly participated in several ANZAC Day events; the Starwars Band appeared in the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers parade. Our bands also contributed to Steampunk on Florence, Wynnum Up Late, Spooktakular Murarrie, and the Ampol Wynnum Halloween Street Parade.

Our year culminated by hosting Brisbane’s Bayside Carols. QSHBA filled George Clayton Park and thoroughly enjoyed entertaining an audience double that of 2021. All performers donated their time to provide an afternoon of entertainment heading into the twilight, accompanied by many carollers and candlelight. What a great setting, Christmas carols by the seaside.

Baysiders of all ages and ability levels are now getting ready for another year of playing music together and having fun supporting community events. With the success of the Australian Celebration concert behind us, our calendar is already filling with exciting performances planned to entertain and showcase student development.

Now is the time to take that first step into music, make fine new friends, build courage and confidence, and enjoy all the gifts that events and festivals hold.

QSHBA coordinates a range of development and performing bands, providing opportunities for students of all ages to develop their musical and performance skills. Beginners to experienced musicians can rehearse and receive tuition on their own instruments or borrow an instrument from the band. Members can participate in all ensembles and lessons free of charge.
