It is with great pleasure that we can support the Kalamunda Youth Swing Band another year.
Formed in 1989 in the Hills area of Perth, Western Australia, the Kalamunda Youth Swing Band has developed an excellent reputation in Perth and beyond for its commitment to nurture and develop professional musical skills in young musicians by offering exposure to and providing the opportunity to perform Big Band music of all styles and from all eras from an early age. The Kalamunda Youth Swing Band has delighted audiences for over 20 years with their winning combination of youth, talent, dedication and professionalism. The Kalamunda Youth Swing Band has an extensive repertoire developed over the past two decades, featuring the music of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, The Gershwins, Ed Wilson and Sammy Nestico as well as arrangements written especially for the band based on the music of artists such as Harry Connick Jr., Natalie Cole, The Daly-Wilson Big Band and Vince Jones.
Partner of Past President Krys Kerr and friend of our club, Peter Kerr presented the KYSB with a cheque of $300 to support the talents of the local youth.
