2018 Eisteddfod - concert band

Junior concert band gets ready to perform
On Monday 30th August, 2018, One Mile State School entered their Concert Band into the Gympie Eisteddfod. This performance gave our students the opportunity to showcase the results of their hard work and continued efforts. Our Concert Band performed very well, while performing technically challenging repertoire. One Mile State School’s Concert band was awarded second place, a very impressive outcome. In addition to our award, we also received a great deal of praise from audience members who sought me out to offer commendations on our outstanding performance.
Congratulations are also in order for our beginner band who entered the following day. While the beginner band did not receive a place, they performed their repertoire to an impressive standard. It is important to note that the beginner band was not performing in a ‘beginner band’ category and were playing against students up to 13 years of age.
Well done to all involved. 8 am starts every Wednesday was a test of your commitment, especially through the cold winter mornings.
