Brass band says thanks

Matamata Chronicle - - Out&about -

A huge thank you to the Mata­mata com­mu­nity for the sup­port re­ceived by Mata­mata Brass through­out the year, cli­maxed by the 80th birth­day cel­e­brated re­cently.

Play­ing, along with Hamil­ton City Brass, to our own com­mu­nity was a high­light for the band and the re­sponse from the au­di­ence was truly re­ward­ing. Lo­cal Mem­o­rie Brooky took up the con­duc­tor’s ba­ton this year and has led the band in var­i­ous play­outs in­clud­ing the open­ing of the dairy unit at the Firth Mu­seum, An­zac Day, Mata­mata Fes­ti­val, Na­tional Band Cham­pi­onships in Ro­torua, re­gional com­pe­ti­tion in Whakatane, Bike day at the Tower and Thomas Sch­weizer re­cently led the band at a carol event at the Tower.

It has been a very busy and suc­cess­ful year for the band and we are not fin­ished yet.

We will be per­form­ing carols around town in early De­cem­ber so come on out to sup­port the band.

Think­ing of try­ing some­thing new in your New Year’s res­o­lu­tions?

What about learn­ing a new skill! New play­ers al­ways wel­come. We have a learn­ers’ group ready to take you on.

Best wishes from Mata­mata Brass for the fes­tive sea­son.

Bar­bara Hodgkin­son, Pres­i­dent Mata­mata Brass
