Sutherland Shire Brass is currently undergoing a major re-launch.

With the rich history and accomplishments of Sutherland Shire Brass, it was seen as fitting that it not wither and die, but be renewed, invigorated and re-launched. As such, if you play a brass instrument or percussion and are interested in joining a band that is no longer old fashioned or boring, then you are on the way to making a great choice.

Join us! Rehearsals are OPEN, INCLUSIVE, FRIENDLY, FUN, CHALLENGING. If you can walk, sit and breathe and have a desire to play with like minded, enthusiasic players, want to sharpen your skills, maybe learn new skills or just enjoy a group of people making magic happen, then come along. Rehearsals are held at our Hall at 77 Eton Street, Sutherland (near Park St).
