A proud tradition
Based in the Sydney’s western suburbs, Our Lady Queen of Peace Maltese Band NSW Inc is the first Maltese concert band in Australia, and is the only one in NSW.
The band brings a 150+ year tradition of Maltese concert bands to Australia and after more than 40 years, we continue to recognise the legacy of the late Maestro Joseph Darmanin and the late Fr Darmenia who, with the first committee under the leadership of Eric Rizzo, realised the vision that a Maltese concert band would be established.
JOIN THE BAND
We welcome all musicians who play a brass, woodwind or percussion instrument, and if you’re just starting out or getting back into the swing of things, we also have a tuition program for anyone aged 8 plus.
