Feilding Brass wishes to acknowledge the passing of Ray Toy on the 8th October 2018.
Ray was a big part of Feilding Municipal Band as it was known back in the day.
He was involved with the junior band and conducted the Senior band for a number of years. Ray was National Open Baritone Champion.

Rest in peace Mr Toy, you were a huge influence on many an aspiring brass band player.

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.
Would like to give a big welcome to Russell who has joined Feilding Brass on cornet.
Russell is full of enthusiasm and experience and we warmly welcome him to our band.

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.
