Eins, zwei, drei … Super! Oktoberfest 2018

Last night at the Palmerston North Cosmopolitan Club, came the “Oompah-pah, Oompah-pah” as Feilding Brass played and swayed to the music of Oktoberfest.

Lead by Steve Mackley and Carissa Davies, the audience of which many were dressed for the occasion, enjoyed a night of Bavarian music where singing was the must and dancing and audience participation was a lot of fun.

Spot prizes were given out during the evening and the band had 2 guest conductors from the audience which was awesome.

Starting and finishing the evening with an Ein Prosit, the night was a complete success and we look forward to doing it all again next year.

Givealittle Fundraiser

Feilding Brass has been around for many many years, and as the band gets older, the players get older, our instruments get older and at times unable to be repaired or played as well as they once did when they were new.

But this instrument can be used by a beginner starting out in the Feilding Brass Training Band which makes it a good stepping stone into the senior band.

Feilding Brass is fundraising to buy a new Euphonium for the Senior band, and we need your help.

Any new instruments that we can get for Feilding Brass will always have an enormous flow on effect for everyone in our brass band family and our community who wants to learn.

Money raised will go towards purchasing a brand new 4 valve, compensating Euphonium.

Any surplus funds raised will go towards purchasing new music.

If you would like to help us and donate, then click on the link to our Givealittle page Euphonium For Feilding Brass

Thank you for your support.

The friendly rivalry and sharing of players between the two bands is alive and kicking up a lot of fun within the players.

This contest was the very first for Carissa Davies as Musical Director for Feilding Brass, at a BBANZ regional contest level. She has done herself proud and the players proud for bringing the band to the level of performance that was had.

The trophies won were for the Entertainment Programme and the Aggregate for the two day competition.
