STOP PRESS: We have had a communication glitch! The latest contest newsletter said that there are photos of the percussion gear on this website, which was not the case. As we have had a number of queries about this we have taken some photos of the A&B grade instruments and posted them here. Unfortunately the C&D grade instruments are already in transit from Christchurch so we are not able to arrange photos.
All supplied percussion will be available for percussionists to trial on Thursday 20th April at the Air Force Band Room, 23 Wigan Street, Te Aro. Please contact Denis Spurdle at email@example.com to book a time between 8.30am and 5.30pm.
The contest committee would like to extend its sincere thanks to the Royal New Zealand Air Force Band for providing the A & B Grade percussion, and the New Zealand Army Band for providing the C, D & Youth Grade percussion.
