We are Brass Whanganui and proud of it!

We have been invited to attend the 2019 Shanghai Tourism Festival being held in Shanghai from the 13th to the 18th of September 2019. In addition to this, we have also been invited to participate in a Tang Dynasty style ceremony in Xi'an, home of the Terracotta Warriors, as part of the Year of China New Zealand Tourism. This ceremony will welcome over 1000 New Zealanders in to Xi'an for a once in a lifetime experience.

Our current estimates put the total cost of this trip at around $85,000. We would love to exceed our goal and fund at least $10,000, and more! Our Boosted campaign is part of a whole lot of fundraising hard work being put in by a dedicated group of volunteers so that this trip can be successful, and achievable for all of our membership

Brass Whanganui was founded in 2001 with the amalgamation of two of New Zealand's most prestigious brass bands, The Wanganui Garrison Band and Wanganui City Brass. The combined history of the two bands make us one of the most successful, and well-known brass bands in New Zealand.

We are very excited and honoured to have been offered these invitations, and are looking forward to the exposure that our presence in China will give to Whanganui, and New Zealand. In order for this to be a possibility for the band, we will need support from our community and around our nation 

We ask that you please consider how you may be able to support Brass Whanganui on this exciting adventure!
