Capricornia Academy Band

‘Capricornia Academy Band’, was formed alongside Capricornia Winds, and provides players of all ages and skill levels the opportunity to develop individual and ensemble skills, whilst rehearsing and performing less demanding repertoire than Cap Winds. For many of our members this is their first experience with a community band, while others are expanding their horizons on a secondary instrument. 

Instrumentation: Piccolo, Flutes, Clarinets, Bass Clarinets, Alto, Tenor and Baritone Saxophones, Oboes, Bassoons, Trumpets, French Horns, Trombones, Euphoniums, Tubas, Percussion, String Basses

Currently under the baton of Jacinta Cran, members of Cap Academy Band also perform at a variety of events and concerts throughout each year, both supporting charity events and at our own concerts within the community; they appreciate and benefit from the guidance of our more experienced players who also often assist at their performances. In 2019 CSB Inc, with Cap Academy Band, launched our annual “Fusion” Workshop and Concert, a collaboration between our organisation and local Secondary Schools to bring the spirit and experience of community banding to the students within the schools instrumental programs.
