Music Director Nigel Weeks has been appointed to this prestigious position for 2016-2019.
Based on his outstanding reputation and success as the conductor of various brass bands, Mr Weeks has been appointed to work with New Zealand’s finest brass players, whom he regards as world-class. Mr Weeks will audition musicians for two main events, the World Brass Band Championships in 2017, and a tour of China in 2019. In 2014, Mr Weeks took the then National Brass Band on a tour of China and Korea, so he is well-placed to prepare musicians for this next exciting phase, which includes a number of concerts around New Zealand in 2016.
Last year, Mr Weeks was the Chief Judge at the Australian National Brass Band Championships and he is currently the Musical Director of the Dalewool Auckland Brass Band.
