It's my privilege to be leading the Chicago Brass Band, an extraordinary group of musicians, on a landmark tour to New Zealand as we represent North American brass bands in this endeavor. Our band has a history of being bold, exciting and innovative in our programming, and in our mission together. I very much hope you will consider supporting us in a concert tour which, i believe has not been undertaken by any other community brass band in North America. We will give a series of concerts on the north island and participate in the New Zealand Brass Band Championships and you will help support what will be a life-changing experience for our members and help promote international relations through music. Thank you!!
