Band Competition 1 2011
Band Competition Saturday 14th May in Hinckley.
A reminder if you haven't sent your entry forms in for the comp, you need to ASAP. So far we have three new bands, including two in the beginner section which is fantastic. Please continue to spread the word and forward this email on.
We also need more entries for the solo and ensemble competitions as these are few in number so far. We have a couple of ensembles and a few mallets soloists. We need to have a good idea of how many of these there are so that we know if they will take place in the main arena or in a separate room.
The age categories for these are 12 and under, 18 and under and 25 and under. Music for the solo drum and bugle is available from me if you don't already have it. Solo mallets, brass and woodwind is a maximum time limit of two minutes. For ensembles, the time limit is three minutes with a maximum of six players. We have had some great, mixed-instrument ensembles in the past so it would be a shame to lose this. Remember, even if you're not entering a band you can enter soloists and/or ensembles.
