The SA Police Band will be joined by Bavarian music ensemble Noerdlingen Knabenkapelle on the Adelaide Town Hall stage on Tuesday 26th March for the Lord Mayor’s Gala concert, with a blend of local and international sounds.
“The Gala Concert is something people look forward to, and I’m proud to be able to present such a diverse, yet well-fitting group of musicians for the people of Adelaide to enjoy,” said Lord Mayor Stephen Yarwood.
“This is the first time the Noerdlingen Knabenkapelle music ensemble has performed at the Town Hall auditorium, and it would be great to welcome them to our city by showing them a full house, and what better way to spend a Tuesday lunch time than with toe tapping music from these inspiring performers.
“Concerts are free of charge to Adelaide City Council residents, and everyone else can purchase tickets from BASS,” he said.
Audiences will be treated to the SAPOL Concert Band performing old favourites such as Dreamed a Dream, Send in the Clowns and 76 Trombones, the Dixieland Bandand the six-piece ensemble, Kind of Blue that will play a mixture of jazz, lounge, folk and rock music presented in an upbeat cabaret style.
Noerdlingen Knabenkapelle, is the musical ambassador of the City of Noerdlingen, one of the only remaining walled cities in Germany, and one of Bavaria’s longest standing youth orchestras.
This musical group, comprising 65 members aged between 13 and 17 years are highly regarded around the world having played for the Pope and at international sporting events such as the London Olympics.
Dressed in the traditional 17th century Noerdlingen city soldiers’ uniforms, the boys repertoire is a combination of traditional, classic and modern sounds, to complement the performance of the SAPOL musicians.
For the concert finale the two groups will join in a celebration of delightful music.
The concert will be held from 12.30pm to 2.30pm in the Town Hall Auditorium and will include a 20 minute intermission where tea, coffee and biscuits will be served.
