National Youth Brass Band of New Zealand

The top young New Zealand brass talent on tour!

The National Youth Brass Band of New Zealand auditions annually to find New Zealand’s most talented young brass and percussion musicians to attend a summer school of tuition and training under the guidance of the country’s leading instrumentalists.

The 2019 band, under the musical direction of David Bremner – the NZSO’s principal trombonist, is touring Australia in January 2019.  Come and hear New Zealand’s top under 23 year old brass talent perform their favourite pieces!

Please note this event is door sales only – with ticket funds payable at the door. 


What the audience says: 

“It is difficult to describe the effect upon an audience of the raw display of young talent this band presents. When the band played at the new ASB Theatre in Blenheim in January 2018, the band’s performance that evening led to one of the most enthusiastic and prolonged standing ovations I ever saw (and participated in!) I am certain that we will see the same quality of performance – and the same exuberant reception – in January next year. We only see this band once every once in a while – don’t miss this one!” – Robin Sutherland

“The youthful enthusiasm of this highly skilled group of musicians makes for a rare musical treat. This is brass performance at its very best!” – Audience member 2018
