Melodienacht has become an iconic Barrossan tradition over the last fifty+ years and is a highlight on the cultural calendar. Melodienacht (translation : night of music) , takes place on the last Friday and Saturday in May, and is the major fundraising concert for the band.

From humble beginnings as a local concert ‘for the man in the street’,  Melodienacht has grown to  become an annual event which takes a year to plan!

The concert is a 3 hour extravaganza; featuring ensemble pieces, solo performances, sing-alongs and guest artists…all performed in front of an audience of up to 1000 each night!

 Staying true to the concept of a music concert ‘for the man in the street’ the band is joined by a hugely talented rhythm section, and performs numbers from across a wide variety of musical genres…there truly is something for everyone.

We invite you to become part of this proud tradition, and support this unique South Australian band, by coming along to Melodienacht  - where we guarantee that you will experience an outstanding night of entertainment in a friendly and vibrant atmosphere. You will be amazed and enchanted as the Tanunda Show Hall is transformed into a Bavarian fairyland complete with  free gluh-wein!


Bring your friends, your picnic basket, and ‘BYO’ for a fun-filled evening that you will never forget.
