Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at

My first venture to the movies was as a birthday treat to see Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music such a very long time ago.

Not long after that an aged Aunt took me to see both Mary Poppins and The King and I, starring the beautifully bald Yul Brynner.

Do you remember music from any of these movies ? I bet you do !

In the early 1900's, movie soundtracks were performed live by piano and organ players stationed discreetly in a front corner of the cinema. Sometimes the music was improvised, though mostly the musicians followed cue cards and the music was selected to enhance the action on screen, as well as the noise from the reel-to -reel movie projector.

As the marvels of cinematography developed so too did the sophistication of soundtracks which were often performed by large orchestras. Gone With The Wind without a musical score is simply unimaginable !

Nowadays, The Best Original Score is awarded an Oscar at the Academy Awards each year.

On Friday night, the 16th of October, you can be reminded of some great tunes from the movies when the Redland City Beginner Concert Band and the Redland City Wind Ensemble perform "At The Movies" .

The Bands will be playing music from Shrek, Grease, Frozen, Despicable Me and many other wonderful movies. It should be a real test of memory, as well as control. One must not sing along afterall!

The concert commences at 7 p.m at the Edgar Harley Pavillion at the Cleveland Showgrounds. Entry is via Smith Street and parking is available in front of, and behind, the Assembly Hall. The Edgar Harley Pavillion is the green roofed building in the background.

plenty of parking

Entry Fee is by gold coin donation and includes supper. I would also recommend taking a few extra dollars as Raffle Tickets will be sold throughout the night to support these two bands. Redland City Bands is a not for profit organisation founded in the early 1980's with a strong community focus for those with a love of musicianship.

I love movie soundtracks . Do you have a favourite ?
