About Us


The Southern Highlands Concert Band is a community organisation which was formed with the support of Wingecarribee Shire Council in 1985 and currently has a playing membership of more than forty musicians of widely varying ages.

The central aim is twofold: to provide quality music to complement the many civic and social events within and beyond the Southern Highlands, and to make available a medium for musicians of all ages to enjoy and develop their musical abilities.

The band performs regularly at both outdoor and indoor venues and presents a regular series of public concerts.

Membership enquires are welcome from players of wind and percussion instruments and should be directed initially to the band Secretary, or other contacts shown below. This may be done at any time via telephone or email, or in person at any rehearsal.


Rehearsals are held at 7:15pm on Wednesday evenings during school terms at the Bowral Memorial Hall, Bendooley Street, Bowral.

Visitors always welcome to rehearsals



November 2018 Concert

Pack Up Your Troubles

November 11, 2018, will mark the centenary of the day the guns fell silent on the Western Front, bringing to an end the carnage of the First World War. The Southern Highlands Concert Band will commemorate this day with a concert that is both reflective and nostalgic. The music will include popular songs from the two World Wars as well as powerful reflections on the nature of warfare and its effect on people and communities. The second half of the concert will feature the music of the great big bands that entertained Australians and our allies throughout the Second World War.
