    The Oxfordshire and District Brass Band Association would like to invite you to take part in our annual Brass Festival on April 26th 2015, a competition for solos, duets, quartets, quintets and small ensembles. This is a great opportunity to show off your skills, no matter whether you are just a beginner or a player of great experience! There are classes for all ages, and even special classes for percussion and adult learners.

    Rules and entry forms can be downloaded from www.odbba.org

    Such a shame this is the same day as the Gloucestershire Brass Band Association Entertainments contest - it would have been great to bring some of the Pillowell Training Band youngsters up for the day. Hope it goes well!

    Yes that is a shame that it clashes, but we spend a lot of time working out what day to choose so that it doesn't clash with Easter or school holidays or anything else that we are aware of before selecting the best date. Unfortunately, it sounds like the GBBA have gone through the same process and reached the same conclusion! I hope you might consider bringing your training band to our Entertainment Contest in October - it would be great to have more training bands taking part.

    What is the date for the October contest Dave? We have just qualified for the Finals so about half a dozen of the Training band will be involved in preparing for those in mid September but if the dates work we'd love to take part

    Only 2 weeks to go until the closing date now. This contest is perfect if you have a youth or training band and want to give the youngsters some experience at slow melody playing. Also fields for duets, quartets, quintets and small ensembles.

    Adults are also welcome to show off their skills! :)
