Calling all potential jazz musicians!

CCB Inc is calling for expressions of interest from musicians to play in a new  jazz-focused social band, Prism Jazz Ensemble.

Prism will play easy to moderate difficulty jazz and requires no previous jazz experience. Perfect for anyone who has wanted to try big band jazz but didn’t know where to start. 

The band will rehearse on Saturday afternoons at Hawker College.

Canberra City Band Inc.

Canberra City Band Inc is a volunteer-run community banding organisation that comprises Canberra City Band, John Agnew Band and Spectrum Big Band. We play regularly across the Canberra region at public and private events including Floriade, the Merimbula Jazz Festival, and the Canberra Carols By Candlelight. You will also find smaller groups of our musicians supporting Brumbies and Raiders games and accompanying Santa parades at Christmas.

CCB Inc has a rich history of supporting the community by providing a place where people come to play music, develop as musicians, make connections and provide music and entertainment for local audiences.

CCB Inc welcomes new musicians to join us at any time. Canberra City Band is an A-Grade concert band that provides an environment for experienced musicians. John Agnew Band is a social band suited to new or returning musicians and accepts all new members. Spectrum Big Band is a jazz band for experienced musicians and fills vacancies by invitation but expressions of interest are always welcomed. 

Canberra City Band (CCB) was historically coined 'the official band of the ACT' and remains Australia's oldest and longest-running community concert band.
