Napier Tech Band Christmas Concert

23 Puketapu Rd, Taradale, Napier

Come and join the seasonal festivities at the Napier Tech Band’s Christmas Concert, on Sunday 12 December at All Saints Church, Puketapu Road, Taradale. Tickets are $10 on the door.

The concert starts at 2pm with some non-festive arrangements so you're not overloaded with too much of the Christmas spirit, as it were, such as California Dreamin'. Then to get you looking forward to Art Deco, I Left my Heart in San Francisco and It Don't Mean a Thing, the latter showing off one of the rising stars in the band, Cameron Boyle, and later in the programme, Variations on Scarborough Fair. Then we get into the Christmas cheer with some fabulous arrangements of well-known tunes. The 'star piece' being a spectacular rendition of The Twelve Days of Christmas broken up by hilarious readings in the style of Penelope Keith.

The audience will be tapping their feet to ‘Courage and Honor’ played by the Junior Band and be amazed by 2 new instruments: the metal trash can and plastic waste bin, in the Junior Band’s performance of ‘Trash Cancerto’.

The Napier Technical Memorial Band is conducted by internationally-renowned conductor and trumpeter, Christopher Wilson, whose job it is to make sure both band and audience have a wonderful and enjoyable afternoon. The audience is encouraged to come along dressed in their Christmas finery and be ready to sing along with some well-known carols.

We are always keen to welcome new players to both the Tech Band and the Junior Band. If you are interested in joining us, email or go to our website to find out more.
