I am pleased to announce that our application for funding from NSW Department of Education and Communities for the 2013/14 to 2015/16 triennium has been successful. Our organisation has demonstrated a growth rate of over 40% during the period from 2010-2012. With our funding assured for another three years we can continue to deliver high quality music education and performance programs in our region. All we need now is a permanent home.

TerangaTeranga is an exciting African Band. They are part of the Musica Viva program and have travelled extensively around the state performing and teaching in schools. Those who attended the Sousaphonics Concert will see one familiar face amongst the band – Sam who played the sousaphone and trumpet is also a member of Teranga. To find out more about them go to and follow the links to Education/Performers. This concert will be one for all the family.
