From the Chairperson

“Kia ora and welcome to the KBB Music Festival website. Now in its 33rd year, the KBB Festival has attracted many of New Zealand’s finest young musicians performing in secondary school orchestras, concert bands, jazz bands and chamber orchestras from within the Auckland region. The skills required to perform in ensembles of this nature require personal dedication and time as well as a developing musical understanding and social responsibility through listening to and working with other musicians and musical directors. The Festival is recognised for the quality of the music that students perform which reflects the commitment of both the students and their teachers. Whether you attend as a performer or as a listener, you will come away invigorated and inspired by the musicianship and exhuberance of all participants.” – Trevor Thwaites
