Event description

Description

An historic collaboration between the St. Olaf College Concert Band and Auckland’s West City Youth Concert Band, bringing together two great programs and seeing nearly 120 musicians perform.

With a history of international touring dating back to 1906, the St. Olaf College Concert Band makes its first-ever tour to New Zealand and Australia in 2018. Hailed as “one of America’s preeminent bands” this 94 member ensemble will present a widely varied program of American music, with a focus on the centennial celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s birth, the music of John Williams, and classic works from the wind band repertoire.

West City Youth Concert Band was created with the purpose of providing a place for students to belong and feel valued for their musical talents. Under the guidance of conductor Matthew Stenbo and the NZCBA Gold-winning West City Concert Band, the new Youth Concert Band aims to foster growth in music and character, while supporting musical education within the West Auckland communities. Students are challenged to achieve their potential in an enriching educational atmosphere where they can form quality relationships with peers and mentors.
