Suc­cess for Porirua band

Kapi-Mana News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Months of in­ten­sive re­hearsal time paid div­i­dends for the Trust Porirua City Brass at the re­cent New Zealand cham­pi­onships in New Ply­mouth.

The con­test at­tracted 30 bands in four sec­tions.

Trust Porirua was first equal with Hamil­ton City Brass Band in the B di­vi­sion, hav­ing fin­ished sec­ond in the street march.

Since the cham­pi­onships, two band mem­bers, Tawa Col­lege stu­dents Ashleigh Smith-Lines and Matt Hur­nen, have been cho­sen in the national sec­ondary schools band.
