Concert Band Spectacular 2017

Welcome to the 2017 Concert Band Spectacular. The event promises to be bigger and better again this year with more sections, more entries and more memories for the students. We are thankful to all of our sponsors as well as our St Columban’s College Parents & Friends Association who continue to support and celebrate the students in their musical journeys within the school and community. I hope that you enjoy this celebration of music and student achievements.
