Leeton Town Band scores Government funding
The NSW Government showed their support to 21 community bands across NSW by offering almost $30,000 in funding in order to reach new audiences and further develop their performance skills and musicianship.
Leeton Town Band was one of the successful applicants and scored $1,035 for the Krazy Kids Klapping project involving children, making and learning to play percussion instruments made from recycled materials. Their performances will be part of the Outback Band Spectacular festival that will take place in Leeton from the 4th to the 6th of November.
Deputy Premier and Minister for the Arts Troy Grant said the funding supports activities including workshops, concerts, sister band relationships and development of promotional, production and IT skills.
“The NSW Government is proud to support community bands that contribute to nurturing talented musicians across NSW,” Mr Grant said. “These Community Band Development Grants will help bands expand their skills, gain new audiences and promote their activities.”
