March 24, saw the first official gig of 2019 for Feilding Brass at Brass In The Park in Levin, hosted by Levin & Districts Brass Band. This included performances by Levin & Districts Brass Band, Feilding Brass, Porirua Brass and Kapiti Brass throughout the afternoon.
Feilding Brass’ set included two vocal numbers by Steve Mackley, singing Mack The Knife and Carissa Davies singing And All That Jazz.
A great afternoon was had by everyone, and the weather was perfect for the occasion.
15 March 2019, New Zealand saw its darkest day, with the terrorist event that happened in Christchurch killing 50 people. Feilding Brass wishes to send its condolences to the families of the victims taken from them.
The Feilding community held a vigil at the clock tower on Monday 18 March, and Feilding Brass was asked to play hymns for half an hour leading up to this event. A very solemn and heart felt evening in the square from all that came together.
Due to the events in Christchurch, the Palmerston North Council decided to postpone the New Zealand Tattoo, which was to be held on 12 & 13 April 2019 out of respect. Hopefully they will come up with another date at some stage.
With our hearts in our hands, we are one.
