The Phoenix Project
4.00pm - Saturday, February 11 - Cross Street Music Hall
Beginning as a traditional brass band in 1882, in recent years Moreland City Band has evolved into a hip, funky, multicultural ensemble that reflects the vibe of the Moreland community. We encompass a range of musical styles including jazz and big band idioms, Balkan and other world music, baroque music and traditional brass band arrangements. Instrumentation includes trumpets, horns, trombones, saxophones, tubas, double bass, guitar, piano, and percussion. Band members include current and former professional musicians, tertiary music students, music graduates and dedicated amateurs. It is a place where returning and emerging musicians can find nourishment in their musical quest.
The Moreland City Band is priviliged to have leading jazz trumpeter and international soloist Scott Tinkler as its musical director. Scott has been a professional musician since 1983.
