Woolston Brass is celebrating its 125th Anniversary this year. Join them on Sunday 3 July to hear their impressive contest repertoire and show your support before they compete at the New Zealand Brass Band Championships being held in Napier in early July.

The high calibre of brass and percussion musicians who play in this well known Christchurch musical icon is 'Seriously' not to be missed! Among other works, Woolston Brass will perform Edward Gregson's 'Of Distance Memories' and Peter Graham's 'The Triump of Time'.

The concert will feature outstanding cornet soloist Harmen Vanhoorne from Belgium, and Woolston Brass will perform the premier of Kenneth Young's 'The Woolstonian'.

Doors sales also available.

About Woolston Brass
Founded in 1891 the band has remained true to the ideal expressed in its Maori motto, Tohea kia kaha (Persevere, so there is Strength), and is today one of New Zealand's most enduring performing arts institutions.

Woolston Brass is New Zealand's most successful contesting brass band including gaining the record Championship title four times in a row from 2009 to 2012. As current holders of the NZBBA Marching Championship and the CPBBA Championship the band is, and always has been, a force to be reckoned with on the contest stage.

Besides its contesting prowess, the band is recognised as a versatile and popular stage performer, be it concert hall auditorium, dance hall, church, retirement village or municipal park! The band strives to perform its culturally unique music to the wider public at every opportunity.

A self-funding amateur music organisation, the band provides a learning facility for developing players, and an artistic outlet befitting those with more experience. With a playing strength of nearly thirty (ranging in age from sixteen to sixty), the members are a diverse mix of business and trades people, teachers, students, soldiers and senior citizens, – all brought together by a common interest and a love of making music.
