Rolleston Brass keeps the ANZAC spirit alive

From Nights, 10:45 pm on 24 April 2024

Tomorrow is a big day for brass band players up and down the country.

Morrine Martin is a member of Rolleston Brass in Canterbury, and she'll be one of hundreds marching and playing across the country tomorrow to pay tribute to those New Zealanders who served in all wars.

The family are all involved, with Morrine's son playing the Last Post at this year's service in Rolleston.

Morrine joins Emile Donovan to reflect on brass bands' special connection with ANZAC Day.
