The Deco Bay Napier Port Brass has today confirmed that world renowned British Euphonium virtuoso Stephen Mead will perform for Hawke’s Bay audiences along with his wife Misa Mead; herself an extremely accomplished Euphonium practitioner.

Mr Mead’s is widely regarded as one of the most successful professional euphonium soloists in the world today, performing over 75 concerts per year with some of the leading orchestras, wind bands and brass bands in the world.

The most recorded euphonium artist in the world, Mead features on some 62 CDs as soloist or guest soloist, while several of his recordings have won international awards, including British Bandsman Solo CD of the year 2006 and 2008 and the Roger Bobo International Recording Award 2006 and 2008.

In March of this year, Steven married Misa Akahoshi, a graduate of the Tokyo College of Music in 2008. Misa won the Gold Medal at the European Solo Competition for Young Soloists in Luxembourg 2011, and graduated with honours at the Paris Conservatory in 2012.

Misa is currently playing for audiences across the globe to rave reviews and will be joining Steven for their trip to the Hawke’s Bay.

Musical Director of the Deco Bay Napier Port Brass, Grant Pitcher, says the July 18th performance at the Napier Salvation Army Citadel will certainly be a night to remember. “We’re extremely privileged to have the chance to experience the talents of some of the worlds finest musicians right here in the bay”, Mr Pitcher said today.
