Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 28 June 2020 - Brass Bands of the Antipodes


Hello Brass Banders

Well I have another theme with this week's show for you. Following a request from one of the show's regular Australian listeners who asked for a theme linked to Australia, New Zealand areas. Having gone through my CD collection I was in the difficult position of having to decide who to leave out. The show has 23 tracks which includes some fabulous instrumental soloists and a wonderful female vocalist. For those listeners not familiar with bands from the other side of the world will I am sure enjoy the show just as everyone else will. The show will be featuring other themes in the future and is always open to suggestions for consideration.

Trevor Bremner needs no introduction in the international brass scene. He has been one of the driving forces in the brass band industry in New Zealand for well over 50 years. He is the creator of the hugely successful brass mute - the sshhmute. Along with his wife, Betty Bremner, Trevor has four sons who all work in the music industry.

Trevor plays the cornet, trumpet, and classical guitar and throughout his playing career, he has many highlights. These have included a 2nd and 3rd place at the British Open Solo Championships. He has taken part in and won numerous New Zealand and Australian Championship cornet titles. Along with the New Zealand Masters and New Zealand and Australian Champion of Champion titles.

He has been awarded as a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM) for his services to music by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Away from his music he is a keen gardener, likes to relax with a good book and enjoys watching car racing and sport. Along with his wife Betty, a first-class pianist, they run their successful business.

Trevor is one of the featured soloists on this week’s show.
