About Woolston Brass Incorporated:

Founded in 1891, Woolston Brass Inc. has remained true to its Maori motto, Tohea Kia Kaha (Persevere, so there is Strength). Today the Woolston organisation has 120+ members across three
brass bands (Woolston Brass, Woolston Concert Brass and Woolston Junior Band) and a learners group. Their leading Academy education programme teaches over 80 children and adults, and provides a positive environment for them to learn music and engage with the community through concert performances, local and National contests.

After successful contest results at the 2023 National Championships, Woolston Concert Brass was promoted to B Grade and is now led by newly appointed Music Director Matt Toomata.

Many Academy members progress to Christchurch’s iconic Woolston Brass (led by Music Director Tyme Marsters), who are known for their musical excellence and versatility as a popular stage performer – whether it be in the concert hall performing to the Canterbury community in their annual concert series, or on the National or local contest stage as New Zealand’s most successful contesting brass band.

Woolston Brass Inc. exists today for its members to learn, play, perform and inspire each other and the community with excellent and diverse musical experiences.
