The annual Goodna Jacaranda Festival School Band Competition was once again well supported by schools from across the region.  The standard of performance is always high and 2019 was no exception, with hundreds of talented students taking the main stage to perform in front of our an enthusiastic local crowd of show goers, family and friends.

    This year the event was adjudicated by Tony Lashmar, who said of the event “I think the school band and orchestra event has great benefits to the school music programs and their students.  Having a festival like this gives students a goal to work towards and the timing is perfect with school calendars.”

    The board of the Goodna Community Association would like to thank all the schools for their participation and congratulate teachers and students on their talented performances.
