Happy New Year! The GBBA Virtual Festival results are here.
Back in November 2020, the GBBA launched a Virtual Festival to support its members and the brass band movement in keeping the spirit of banding alive. The aim of the solo and ensemble contest was to encourage musicians to keep playing during lockdown and enjoying the music we all make and love.
To herald in the new year (and hopefully a better year) in 2021, the results for the contest have been released!
Congratulations to all prize winners and thank you to everyone who entered.
There was a total of 48 entries from 48 individuals from 18 brass bands.
GBBA would like to thank Dr Brett Baker for adjudicating, and Michael Rath and Geneva Instruments for sponsoring this contest.
Feedback for each performance will be sent to individual contestants.
Keep playing music. Keep banding going.
