IT'S OFFICIAL: Maryborough has the best brass band in the state. Maryborough Excelsior City Band took out the top prize at the 2010 State Brass Band Championships winning all five of its events. Musical director of 27 years Mel Neilsen said the results reflected the outstanding efforts of the band's members. “Every member should feel proud that they have reached this high standard and bring such credit to the city of Maryborough,” he said. Committed to entertaining the community with performances at events such as Anzac Day, the Mary Poppins Festival, park functions and concerts. Younger members in particular gained many benefits from the structured musical activity. Future plans include celebrating the band's centenary in 2013 and replacing ageing instruments but we need corporate and community support to achieve these aims.
