UoA Concert Band
Following on from a very successful year in 2015, the UoA Concert Band continues to rack up awards, winning a Best Solo Performer and Silver Award overall at the New Zealand Concert Band Association Awards in 2016.
The band is also active locally, playing in the Auckland Town Hall for NZ Music Month, organising and performing at ‘Band Together’, the biggest concert of its kind in New Zealand. Band members can also be found popping up all over campus for performances, including as part of Clubs Expo, Courses and Careers Day and the Clubs Awards, where they were runners-up in the Cultural Club of the Year category.
As a primarily social group, the band strives to cultivate a culture and be a platform for members to network and make friends. Not only is the club the largest community band in NZ, its student membership ranges widely across all eight faculties – an inclusivity the executive committee is proud of.
