Boost for mu­si­cians

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Two Porirua mu­si­cians have been cho­sen to play for the Na­tional Youth Brass Band at the fi­nal con­cert of its tour, in Wellington next weekend.

It is Matthew Hur­nen’s first time in the band on sec­ond trom­bone and Ni­cholas Gar­rett is the band’s prin­ci­pal cor­net.

Both men play in the Trust Porirua City Brass Band.

The Na­tional Youth Brass Band is a mix of ta­lented young New Zealan­ders aged un­der 23 and drawn from all around the coun­try. Se­lec­tion is by au­di­tion. Many for­mer band mem­bers have gone on to pro­fes­sional mu­si­cal ca­reers.
