The Inner West Community Youth Band launched in December 2019. The youth band, supported by a few select volunteers from IWCB, made their debut performance at the community carols in Halliday Park, Five Dock. The performers had a fantastic time and went away having gained new knowledge, friends and ensemble experience.
