BBANZ announces new Musical Director

The Brass Band Association of New Zealand is pleased, and proud, to announce the appointment of Dr Robert Childs as Musical Director of the 2013 National Brass Band of New Zealand.

The Band was first formed in 1953 and has been formed periodically ever since under the direction of noted conductors who have conducted New Zealand bands, but this is the first occasion on which a Musical Director from the United Kingdom has been appointed. It is particularly pleasing that such an eminent Musical Director as Dr Robert Childs has accepted the position.

Auditions for seats in the band will be carried out shortly by Dr Childs.

Although arrangements are not yet finalised it is intended the band will give concerts in New Zealand and China in mid to late October 2013.
