Concert Band trip to Hawaii

Manurewa High School’s Concert Band has just returned from a concert tour to Hawaii.

The trip is the result of 18 months of fundraising work including cake stalls, sausage sizzles, garage sales and car washes - all scheduled amidst rehearsals and concerts, lessons and meetings. 

The concert band visited Hawaii for just over a week.  Excellent planning meant not a minute was wasted!  The band played four concerts including special performances at Pearl Harbour and the Polynesian Cultural Centre.  The students also got to attend a workshop at the University of Hawaii.  It wasn’t all about the music though - the students were fortunate enough to enjoy some of Hawaii’s leisure pursuits such as catamaran sailing, a submarine tour, snorkelling and surfing. Music teacher Tim Randle described the trip as “An amazing experience, with tremendous educational benefits.”

Manurewa High School’s music department wishes to convey their thanks to all those who made the trip possible, including our special 'club of 100' members:
