The NZSM Brass Ensemble is proud to join forces with some of New Zealand’s finest brass players from the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra in Brass Extravaganza. The combined NZSM and NZSO Brass Ensemble will provide a dose of exhilarating musical entertainment as overture to the sporting maelstrom to follow!

Directed by Andrew Jarvis, NZSM Head of Brass studies and NZSO tuba principal, this concert will showcase NZSM brass players, member of New Zealand’s finest tertiary brass programme. "These students are thrilled to perform alongside the professional talents of the NZSO brass section," Andrew says. "Their combined programme is sure to provide an experience both stirring and diverse with some fantastic works that will dazzle any audience and visiting guests."
