Hello and welcome to another 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 endeavours 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 bring to your attention some changes to the web site. The URL of  http://cityofburniebrassband.com has been officially registered for a yearly charge of around $11. However the website is still being hosted for free by WEBNG and the old address of http://cityofburniebrassband.webng.com  is still valid. You would have noticed there have been changes to the home page which now features a picture of the band room mural (painted by Damian Rossiter) up the top. Also there have been slight alterations to the Frank Scolyer, Media, Archives, Links, and Contact us pages. The Archives page now features a tribute to Ted Bentley using information contributed by Jenita Lusted. Jenita also appears to have some involvment in a new facebook site dedicated to the band which you should be able to find with a simple search. If not then try this link http://www.facebook.com/pages/City-Of-Burnie-Brass-Band/124024960951599  If you have any ideas on ways to improve this site or extra features that could be included then contact us with your suggestions.

At the moment the band is practising hard for the up coming Celtic Force concerts in both Launceston and Burnie and watch out for the Sea Sunday service coming up on July 11th at the St Georges church.

News Updates:

* The band is about to purchase a new Euphonium for a price of around $4,500. It is believed that Treasurer Jenny Watts will bring it back from Adelaide sometime in the next month or so.

* A note for band members involved in Celtic Force. Once again there will be morning rehearsals on both concert days. So be at both the Launceston Princess Theatre on July 3rd  and at the Burnie Arts & Function Centre on July 24th ready to rehearse at 10:00AM in the morning.
