Frequently asked questions
We are currently looking for musicians to fill vacancies in the following sections:
However, if you play another instrument and are interested in joining, please get in touch with us to discuss.
SEQSW rehearses on Monday evenings from 7.00pm to 9.15pm at the Bracken Ridge Scout Den, 50 Tomah Road, Bracken Ridge. See map >
The South East Queensland Big Band also rehearses on Monday evenings from 6.00pm.
What to bring: Your instrument and a music stand. Percussionists are asked to provide their own drumsticks and mallets, though the band provides all percussion equipment.
If you are returning to playing your instrument after a few years away from it, and looking for something on top of your own practise, we would also be happy to have you come along and sit in with our experienced musicians. When you and the Musical Director are comfortable with your skill level, we can then speak about joining as a member.
We welcome prospective members to sit in on a few rehearsals and get to know the band before making a commitment.
To apply for membership, simply complete a membership form and pay your membership fee.
Percussionists will be pleasantly surprised at our full set of timpani, symphonic chimes, and tuned percussion available for use.
These fees, in addition to ensuring you are covered by the band’s public liability insurance, help us as a non-profit organisation, to pay for rehearsal venue hire, insurance premiums, and for the purchase of new equipment and music.
General fee: $175 per annum
Instrument Loan (if applicable): Fees apply specific to instrument.
Pensioner rates and multiple family member discounts are available, as well as flexible payment options.
All other uniform components are to be provided by the member. These include black trousers, black socks, and black leather shoes.
