Hawkes Bay Festival of the Bands

Concert and brass bands from around Hawke's Bay, Waikato and Manawatu will gather in the Lowe Family Performing Arts Centre at Lindisfarne College to participate in the popular Hawke's Bay Festival of Bands.

Each band gives a 30 minute programme competing for gold, silver and bronze awards together with best soloist and most entertaining performance prizes on offer.

Hosted by the Concord Bands, comprising musicians from both Lindisfarne College and Hastings Girls' High School, this KBB Music sponsored event includes the Concord Bands, Bay Cities' Symphonic, Deco Bay Brass, Napier Technical Memorial, Napier Boys' High School Concert and Jazz Bands, Palmerston North Boys' High School Concert and Stage Bands, Waikato Youth, Havelock North High and Intermediate Schools' Bands and three bands from Freyberg High School, Palmerston North, including their Stage Band.

“Festival performances are entertainment based with many bands featuring, not only their standard repertoire, but also a woodwind, brass, percussion or vocal soloist with band accompaniment", John Snowling.
