'Warm Resound' - free National War Memorial concert

Join us on Sunday 20 August 2017 for a free concert at the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park's Hall of Memories.

The Wellington Brass Quad will play the music of Vaughan Williams, Bach, Albinoni and other traditional melodies

Takes place inside the Hall of Memories at 2.30pm.

This concert will run for approximately 45 minutes and no RSVPs are required.

The Quad members of Tony Pringle and Patrick Webb (trumpet), Luke Spence (euphonium) and Andrew Yorkstone (trombone) have all played with the Royal New Zealand Air Force Band, Wellington Brass, Orchestra Wellington and the National Youth Orchestra.

The above bugle went to the First World War and came back.  It features two numbers on it – one for going and the other for returning.  It’s a very historic piece and Patrick Webb plays it every time he performs at the daily Last Post ceremony.

We welcome everyone to Pukeahu and enjoy this ‘Warm Resound’ free concert.

We’re encouraging Sunday visitors who may want to take a look around the Great War Exhibition in the Dominion Museum to then wander down the steps to the Hall of Memories, enjoy this 45-minute concert and then attend the ‘Soldier’s Story’ reading and Last Post ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior at 5pm.

On Sundays in August, we remember Captain Pekama Rongoaia Kaa at the Last Post.
