Hello and welcome to the very first posting of Conbrio Online (the Latest News for the City Of Burnie Brass Band). Think of this as an online version of Conbrio (the official newsletter for the City Of Burnie Brass Band). This page will endeavour to keep all band members and other interested  parties posted on all the latest goings on for the band, so be sure to check it now and again to make sure you are up to date. In addition band members should also continue to check the White boards in the band room for upcoming playouts and events.

The first item on the agenda is to welcome you all to the Official web site of the City of Burnie Brass band (CBBB). This site has been planned for quite some time and has now finally come to fruition. If you have any ideas on ways to improve it or extra features that could be included then contact us with your suggestions.

The band has just competed in the National Band Championships that were held in Hobart from April 2-5. The championships were a success and well run. We were reasonably pleased with our performance in the C Grade Brass section. The highlights for us were coming 1st in the Hymn section of the C Grade contest and 2nd out of 6 C Grade bands in the Drill section of  the Street March.
