On Friday, Whangaparāoa College Concert Band and Big Band performed at the KBB Music Festival competition at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell.

The KBB Music Festival is the largest regional youth music event in New Zealand involving over 4,500 young musicians. It showcases Symphony Orchestras, Chamber Orchestras, Concert Bands and Jazz Bands in Auckland secondary schools and beyond.

It was a fantastic day celebrating the wonderful talent we have across Auckland and both our Concert Band and Big Band were a part of this Music festival. The Concert band received a Bronze award and the Big Band a Highly commended and we are very proud of both Bands and how hard they have worked and with their dedication to the music department at Whangaparāoa College. 

We look forward to being a part of this wonderful festival again in 2024 and having more musicians join our wonderful bands. Our senior students are also pleased that they will gain NCEA music credits from their performances in this festival.

Huge thanks to our amazing music teachers Ms Shone and Mr Ha'unga for their dedication and guidance to our music learners.

Congratulations again to both bands. We are very proud of you all.
