Diocesan School for Girls is very excited about hosting the event. The school is well resourced and has a team of staff, parents and students who want to make this Festival even more remarkable that Wellington was!
The Festival will include Band Workshops by Dr Kevin Cameron of Australia. Kevin, who is also Musical Director of New Zealand Youth Symphonic Winds, is a highly experienced practitioner who will bring his love of wind band music and exceptional skill as an educator to your workshop. Note Band Workshops are optional. These workshops will be open to all attendees.
Also we will have Instrument Workshops and Conducting Clinics, sponsor tables and social opportunities.
We also can announce our first adjudicator of bands: Matt Klohs. Matt, also from Australia, is very excited be part of our Festival. He brings an immense amount of experience to us.
