Manukau Concert Band and Tironui

In October twenty Tironui wind students joined their tutors at an MCB practice. They sat amongst the band members with their instruments and music, and received excellent encouragement and feedback from Tom Chester, MCB’s director/conductor.

It was great to see the band members adjust to the extra numbers of players, and to see the students participating, even when some of the music was new to them.

The next day there were a few disappointed students who had not been able to get there, but if it becomes an annual event many of them may get their chance next year.
