On Monday 20 March Charles Stewart accompanied by his wife visited the bandrooms while the Auxiiary Band were rehearsing. Charles presented his painting of the band playing in St Andrews Church to Cambridge Brass. The picture was accepted by the Band President and is now hanging in the bandrooms.
Cambridge Brass were busy over the weekend of 18/19 February. The Quintet played at a dinner for guests from Le Quesnoy and their hosts. On the following day the auxiliary band played to greet the guests at a luncheon also at Karapiro. The Senior Band then played while the attendees dined.
The Cambridge Brass Quintet played at the Te Kowhai Country Market on Saturday 11 February. See the Te Kowhai Market facebook page.
Last night the 30th of January was the first rehearsal for the auxiliary band.
Both the Auxiliary and Senior Bands will be rehearsing on Waitangi Day. The Ensemble had one week off during the holidays so Cambridge Brass is back in business preparing for their first engagements.
The Senior Band had their first rehearsal for 2017 on Monday 23 January. It was well attended. There is some urgency as both the Ensemble and the Senior Bands are playing to visitors from Le Quesnoy on the weekend of 18/19 February.
The Senior Band will rehearse on Auckland Aniversary Weekend Monday.
