The Yass High School Band has maintained a very high level of professionalism for many years now winning awards in both State and National Eisteddforts and touring to other cities and towns and interstate.

They are called on for many public functions and ceremonies throughout the Yass Valley Shire.

Much of the credit for the bands performance must go to the band’s director of 17 years, Geoff Townshend who has carefully nurtured his students talents. In recent years the addition of band conductor Colin Fisher has been a bonus and undoubtably added to the bands success. Colin took up duties upon retiring his position with the Royal Military College Band, Duntroon.

This success of the Yass High School Band is set to continue, under it’s talented new director David Greenwood, who will take up the reins from retiring director Geoff Townsend in 2008.
