It was a busy week last week with the KBB Music Festival - the annual school orchestra and band festival. I'm on the committee so it's a busy time of organising, stage managing, watching and listening. On Thursday night it was great to hear the Rangitoto College Concert Band give another performance of my work, "bubble". Nice work guys and thanks for the opportunity to workshop it with you a few weeks earlier.
Here's the inaugural honours orchestra - put together by Peter Thomas, Sally Tibbles and myself - a selection of the finest talent across all participating schools.
Here's the Auckland Town Hall stage setup for last night's gala concerts.
Here's some members of my wonderful chamber orchestra with their bronze award.
