We had a wonderful time streaming the Youth and D Grade sections of the 2021 New Zealand Brass Band Championships. Unfortunately, we can’t keep recordings up as it violates copyright.
D grade is the backbone of banding in New Zealand, and it was great to hear the standard being so high! Well done everyone, especially Matamata Brass for the win.
