Turaton Music Company performed at the Shepparton Brass Band Diamond Jubilee Concert held in Shepparton on Sunday, October 28.
Spokesperson Jeff Baker said about 600 people thoroughly enjoyed the concert which included band items, the band with piper Robin Sharp, the band with Turaton Music Company and also with soloists Donald Campbell, Priscilla Hall and Justine Ryan.
He said the band was conducted by Major Eric Anderson, a highly credentialled musician and conductor, who was brought up from Seymour because of his ability to work with bands and choirs.
‘‘In a short time, he moulded both groups to give excellent performances. Shirley Ferguson was Turaton’s music director and taught the items to the choir, with Eric to then combine both groups,’’ Mr Baker said.
He said the band’s secretary Allan Thompson initiated the idea of the Diamond Jubilee Concert, which was supported by council and the two local groups.
