National Youth Brass Band 2017 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 at the Theatre Royal in New Plymouth at 7:30 pm on January 25th 2017.

The programme will feature a mix of classical and modern brass band music. The first half features classical works, including Phillip Wilby’s “Paganini Variations” Denis Wright’s arrangement of Brahms “Academic Festival Overture”. The second half is lively and upbeat, featuring modern Brass Band and Jazz music. This is an exciting range of music that will appeal to all ages.

This year the band is under the musical direction of David Bremner, Music Director of Australasian Champion band Wellington Brass, and principal trombonist with the NZSO.

The band is an eclectic mix of talented young New Zealanders up to age 22, who perform to an amazingly high standard. They are chosen by audition from applicants all over New Zealand. Their enthusiasm is infectious, making the performance an inspiring and musically satisfying experience.

The NYBB gets together annually for 5 days of rehearsal, followed by a short concert tour. In January 2017, the band will rehearse in New Plymouth, before embarking on a concert tour including New Plymouth, Whanganui, Palmerston North and Wellington.
