At the Feilding Civic Centre
On April 9th and 10th, 2016, Feilding is hosting 12 bands from the lower North Island in the biennial combined district brass band contest.
On Saturday each band performs a reflective item and test piece. This is held in the Feilding Civic Centre with the first band starting at 1pm and the last expected to finish around 6:30pm.
On Sunday the bands each perform a ‘concert program’, a 30 minute bracket with a wider variety of program choice and more emphasis on entertainment. This is also held in the Feilding Civic Centre, between 9am and 5pm, with a two hour gap from 11:30am.
Filling in that gap on Sunday is the march, where the bands play while marching down the street. This starts at 12.15 going down Eyre Street, weather permitting.
With the current director stepping down at the end of 2015, we are looking for a new Musical Director.
A description of the position can be found here: FB MD JD v2
Expressions of interest or applications can be made via the contact section on the join page.
The 22nd Feilding Festival of Bands was held last Sunday, 14 June at the Feilding Civic Centre.We had a full-house of bands this year with 13 brass, wind, and school bands, adjudicated by Mark Carter.
