Celebrating 120 years of continuous banding 1901 – 2021

Mitcham City Brass, based in Adelaide, South Australia, has enjoyed much success over the last few years, winning the 2017 and 2019 State C Grade titles and coming second in the 2018 Australian National Brass Band Championships. The band was recently promoted to B grade and is looking forward to the challenge of continuing the development of its sound and quality of performance.

Mitcham is one of the busiest brass bands in Adelaide, staging many concerts throughout the year as well as performing at a wide range of community events. Led by musical director Steven Packer, our repertoire includes traditional brass band marches, hymns and contest pieces as well as movie soundtrack and popular music from the 1940’s to the present.

New members are always welcome. Practice is held on Monday and Thursdays commencing at 7.30 pm in our Band Room at the corner of Grange Road & Belair Road, Torrens Park opposite the Mitcham Council Chambers. Lessons are available for those wishing to brush up their skills, or those wishing to learn a brass instrument from scratch.
