Nelson City Brass, New Zealand is looking for an accomplished cornet player to join our front row.
Nelson City Brass placed second in their grade at the National Brass Band Championships.
Nelson City Brass fell short by a whisker at the Regionals held in Motueka over the weekend of May 26-27, half a point was all that seperated them from A-Grade Marlborough District Brass. They did however win several awards in a strong showing.
Band results were as follows:
Entertainment programme – 1st place
Entertainment soloist – Mike Ford (Nelson)
Stage March – 1st equal
Test Selection – 1st equal
Sacred Work – 2nd
Aggregate – 2nd (by 0.75 of a point)
Congratulations also to all of our soloists!!!
Congratulations to Marlborough District Brass for their overall win. We look forward to supporting you in the A grade at your home town National contest in July. Nelson City Brass will be competing at the Nationals in the B Grade for the first time in many years. We can’t wait!
