Magic Moment at the Titanic Bandstand

Posted on 25 April 2011

Recently, going past the lovely old Titanic Bandstand on the way to dinner at Saffron’s (corner of Sturt and Camp Street) I commented on how sad it is that bands today find it too small to use.

Between courses, I looked out and there, like a vision, was a small brass band playing, watched by a handful of people and one large dog.

I raced over the road with my camera to discover this was the Titanic Memorial Band, comprised of members from several different bands. They come, unannounced to Ballarat to play once a year to celebrate the Titanic Band and all band members who have died.
