Canberra City Band’s long history includes a great deal of wonderful MDs.
The Hoffmann Winds
The Hoffmann Winds were formed in 2010 as a means for CCB Inc to further
specialise with a chamber ensemble capability. They are named to honour
the life and work of Bill Hoffmann, OAM.
There is no set instrumentation directed, therefore The Hoffmann Winds can
be a traditional Brass or Woodwind quintet, or perhaps a Brass choir or Tuba
consort, or any chamber arrangement. This is by design so as to ensure
that no matter the number of musicians in CCB inc, the name can live on.
