Supporting Feilding Brass

One part of being in a community group is fundraising. To enable us to continue what we do in the community to entertain you.

Along with Concerts and Community Events, one of our other fundraising activities is on Trade Me.

Whether you are  looking for a bargain or want to support Feilding Brass Band, then please head over to the Feilding Brass Trade Me Page where you may well find yourself a treasure, and you will be supporting our band as well.

If there is another way you would like to support us, please email us at feildingbrass@gmail.com and we will get in contact with you.

Thank you for your support.

Our Youth in Banding

One great thing about playing in a musical group is not just playing a tune, its also about learning, no matter how old you are.

At senior band rehearsal tonight, percussionist Steve is showing new percussionist Sarah the correct technique for doing a cymbal roll.

Good to see the young ones interested in music, and the more experienced players willing to teach their skill.

Welcome Russell

Welcome Carissa

Introducing our new Musical Director.

Carissa Davies has taken over the reigns of Musical Director of Feilding Brass from incumbent Murray Coffey.

As a very talented musician playing various instruments in Feilding Brass for many years and other groups within the wider Manawatu area, Carissa brings a wealth of knowledge to the leadership, taking the band forward with enthusiasm and style.

On 22nd of April 2018, Carissa lead the band in her first “official gig” as Musical Director at the combined concert held in Levin, with a well thought out program to entertain everyone.

A job well done Carissa, and we all look forward to many more gigs with you at the helm.
