The Upper Hunter Conservatorium of Music and Arts Upper Hunter joined forces to tour the music of Motown to four venues in our region: Singleton, Muswellbrook, Scone and Dungog.
The firs concert kicked off on Sunday 2 May at the Singleton Civic Centre and featured the Singleton Town Band.
Andrew French Northan, Director of the Upper Hunter Conservatorium of Music said, “You can experience some of the of the greatest pop music ever written. It’s sort of interesting that Detroit came up with this extraordinary array of music. Following World War 2 and post industrialisation there was this mass migration to the huge factories, and some of the most incredible musicians in America ended up in one place at one time in that bizarre little room called the Snakepit. Magical music generated in this small little room.”
The present Singleton Town Band formed in 1878 making it one of the oldest established bands in the Commonwealth. The STB has three distinct bands – senior, intermediate and late starters. The band regularly performs at major local events including Australia Day and Anzac Day, and hosts the annual “Bands in Concert”. For more details https://singletontownband.wordpress.com/about/
