    Our junior band conductor wants to enter our junior band members into more solo and quartet contests. I was wondering if anyone knows of such contests which take place around our area?
    Thanks :)

    There used to be. Last year I think it was cancelled due to lack of entries? I'm not sure whether it is running this year though...

    hmmm...
    I've done a few in your sort of area (bath) because my gran lives in bradford-on-avon so I can stay there...

    Remember there was one I played at in Corsham a couple of years ago... do you know if that ones still going?

    If you fancy a day out, (it's slightly out of your area!) then the Oxford Brass Festival is a great day - there are loads of youngsters (and adults!) take part but we are always delighted to see even more! It takes place on May 21 this year. If you want further info, please feel free to pm me.

    Then again - if your band arent playing at Weston there shouldnt be a problem :p

    Yes, that's the same day as Weston and our band are playing there. The Oxford Brass Festival sounds interesting though so if you were able to send me some information to pass on to our junior band for next year maybe, that would be cool. :tup

    Tom, the Corsham contest is still going and it's on Sat 7th October.:)

    Fingers crossed there will be a new solo, duet, quartet and ensemble (min of 5 players) contest on Sunday 16 July 2006 in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. Can't tell you much more than that just yet as we are working flat out to pull this off...... PM me if you want more info and a schedule

    We'll be back there again I'm sure - we've just been on a long holiday! ;)
    Maybe not this year as it clashes with something else the band are already doing...but maybe next year!! :)
