National Youth Brass Band Tour – Summon The Heroes
National Youth Brass Band 2015 Tour
The National Youth Brass Band (NYBB) are a talented group of young brass musicians from all around Aotearoa New Zealand, who will be performing in Nelson on Friday Jan 30th 2015.
Summon the Heroes is the theme of the 2015 Tour, marking the forthcoming 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli, and featuring a range of music both evocative and modern that will appeal to all ages. The concert will also showcase the talents of some of the outstanding soloists within the band.
The NYBB is auditioned, and assembles annually for a period of intense rehearsal and training, under the musical direction of Peter Adams, Associate Professor of Music, University of Otago, and assisted by a range of tutors from the NZ School of Music, NZSO, and leading NZ brass bands.
The NYBB performs at a very high level of musicianship, notwithstanding the youthful makeup of the Band. The band is an eclectic mix of talented young New Zealanders up to age 22. Some band members are still at secondary school, and some are at university studying engineering, design, commerce, medicine or law. Others are working in a variety of employment.
Please join us for an outstanding evening of music and entertainment.
