The National Youth Brass Band of New Zealand has received a massive sponsorship boost towards their 60th anniversary tour to Australia in January 2019.
The Clinical Trial Company TM Group (TCTC Group), a privately owned full-service clinical research provider with its global headquarters near Manchester along with offices located throughout Europe, North America, Asia and Australia, will sponsor the latest generation of talented players when they head to Australia to give a series of concerts in Brisbane, Toowoomba and the Gold Coast.
Formed in 1959 the band has provided an invaluable opportunity for young players and conductors — many of who have graduated to enjoy outstanding musical careers.
A spokesperson for the company told 4BR: "The Clinical Trial Company (ANZ) Pty Ltd, part of TCTC Group is delighted to be participating in the band's fundraising, aiming to help youth to stay creative and encourage an environment of education inspired by the arts.
TCTC Group is committed to supporting the local community and is also a proud sponsor of the Championship level TCTC Group Band.
