HCCB Wins Silver Award at Nationals

Members of the Hibiscus Coast Concert Band who attended the Festival

The Hibiscus Coast Concert Band recently competed in the New Zealand Concert Band Festival held in Auckland, receiving a Silver Award. We performed a selection of pieces, selected both for their technical aspects as well as their swing and fun personality, which the band is known for. The line up of pieces included:

– In the Centre Ring by Robert Sheldon
– Jitterbug by Robert Buckley
– Wind Jammer by Robert Buckley
– The Light Eternal by James Swearingen

The adjudicators were impressed with our band commenting “It was great to see a community band performing good music well”. This is the second time we have attended and are proud of our accomplishments after having only been running for 3 years.

Next year we are hoping to have an even more rounded band and perform even better.
