Junior Band makes huge progress in 2017

Nelson City Brass Junior Band Cathedral Christmas 2017

The Nelson City Brass Junior Band continues to make impressive progress.

The band now boasts over 25 members, with many more learning and ready to join the ranks in 2018.  Alongside a successful performance at the Westport Regional Band Competition, the Junior Band has had performances in Isel Park, on Trafalgar Street in central Nelson and as people entered the Cathedral for our annual Christmas Concert.

A huge thank you must go out to Musical Director Nigel Weeks, alongside tutors Zane Maxwell and Jan Lewis.  

We are looking forward to following the progress of the band as they prepare for some high profile performances in 2018.  The future of the senior band is certainly looking bright with such a talented group of young people moving through the ranks.

We hope you enjoy the short videos of the band attached to this article.
