Hello everyone.

Having a great time in Christchurch, I will be in Queenstown for the next two days sight seeing with my family and Garry Cutt and Lucy Murphy.

1st Place: Woolston
2nd Place: Waitakere City Trusts Brass
Also performing were Marlborough, Canterbury

Best soloist: Soprano with Waitakere

Champion of Champions soloist: David Chaulk (Trombone)

Like I said once I get a full results listing I will post the rest of the sections.


Fabulous contest, very well run and nice to see a few familiar British faces there. Bob Childs adjuducating, David Thortnon playing with Woolston, Geoff Hawley, Matthew Chandler, Iwan Fox from 4barsrest playing with Woolston and Dean Morley playing BBb Bass with Waitakere.

Very tired now. It has been a very intense run up to the contest. We have only been in NZ for just over a week!!!

I will keep you up to date with any interesting news.

Well done Alex. Hope you enjoyed playing with Waitakere - I had the privilege of reviewing their "Creative Brass" cd for 4barsrest & was most impressed - adventurous content and fine playing.

What is the difference between the "Championship Cornet" class and the "Amateur Cornet"?
Anyone can enter the amateur cornet but you have to qualify for the Championship cornet by coming in the first 3 places of the Amateur in the previous 2 or 3 years. Im not 100% on the exact criteria. The piece is never as hard in the amateur either. ie: This year Amateur was Zelda and Championship was Concerto 1945, I cant remember who it was by!!!!!
Aparently came about cos they had 40-50+ people entering the cornet section about 15 years ago.
