Age of Brass

Footscray-Yarraville City Band

Presented by Footscray-Yarraville City Band


Celebrating over 150 years of Footscray-Yarraville City Band.

A pillar of the community in the Western Suburbs for over 150 years, Footscray-Yarraville City Band (FYCB ) have toured the world, won international and national Brass Band championships, and have entertained audiences from the crowds at the Western Bulldogs games to the Australian Embassies in London and Paris.

With incredible guest artists from the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, and Cory Band (ranked as one of the best Brass Bands in the world), FYCB will be drawing from an incredible range of music, the world’s greatest brass band composers, virtuosic solo works for trumpet, trombone, euphonium and flugelhorn, and orchestral works for brass.
