West City Youth Concert Band was established in 2015 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 West City Concert Band, the band aims to foster growth in music and character, while supporting musical education within our West Auckland communities.

Hibiscus Coast Concert Band is a brand new community venture, with members of all ages (from 15 year old college students to people whose ages shouldn’t be mentioned!) Anyone can join and so we have players of all ability levels. We perform at local community events and retirement homes. We enjoy meeting fortnightly to chat, drink coffee and play the odd bit of music. We are very grateful to the support we have had from Orewa College, who provide a place for us to rehearse, and to West City Concert Band and Auckland University bands for the loan of some of our repertoire.
