We are the Manawatu Concert Band, a Palmerston North-based community symphonic band comprising woodwind, brasswind and percussion.
We have members of all ages and walks of life, and our common bond is that we love to play music and have fun while we're at it! Our musical style covers all tastes and interests including concert band literature, movie sound tracks, musicals, pop, light classical, swing and jazz.
We have two major concerts a year (May/June and October/November) as well as local festivals (Feilding Festival of Bands) and community play-outs. We regularly win Gold or Silver awards at the Feilding Festival of Bands and have also won additional awards for Best Soloist and Most Entertaining Programme.
