Cory’s Nigel works his magic to bring success for Kiwi band
CONGRATULATIONS to Nigel Seaman, the Cory Band’s musical advisor, who represented Wales with honour when he accepted an invitation by Wellington Brass of New Zealand to conduct them at the Australian Brass Band Championships in March.
Nigel was down in the southern hemisphere for a month working with the band and the effort repaid great dividends as Wellington Brass gave outstanding performances in each of the four elements of the competition, winning the Hymn, the Set Test Piece, the Own Choice Test Piece and the Stage March.
The chief adjudicator described their Own Choice Test Piece performance of Fraternity as a “spectacular worldclass performance”.
