The Wellington Bands and Orchestras Festival, celebrates music-making by New Zealand’s school and community Concert Bands, Orchestras, Big Bands and Jazz Combos. Although promoting and focusing on bands and orchestras in the Wellington region, WeBO is open to any band or orchestra from around New Zealand and the world.
Each performing ensemble will receive a trophy and written comments from our specialist adjudicators. This year we once again welcome from Baltimore, USA, Dr Rich Roberts, who will also be conducting workshops with each ensemble prior to their performance!
The non-competitive atmosphere provides a place for growth, cooperative encouragement and mutual respect among bands and orchestras, students, parents, music directors and teachers.
