    Usually a good afternoon listening and talking bands - who's going?


    Baliff Bridge Community Centre, Victoria Road,

    Baliff Bridge, Brighouse. HD6 4DX.

    1.30. pm. SUNDAY 6TH JANUARY 2013.

    The Association of Brass Band Adjudicators will be holding their Annual General Meeting during the morning of the above date at Baliff Bridge Community Centre. Following this meeting ABBA is joining forces with No 2 Area of The National Association of Brass Band Conductors in promoting an Open Workshop covering the chosen works for Sections 4 – 3 and 2 of the Regional Test Pieces for 2013.

    This workshop which will commence at 1.30.pm will be open free of charge to any interested party to attend. The three pieces will be introduced by members of ABBA who will outline the various points of interest contained in the music from an adjudicating aspect. They will be assisted by Simone Rebello who will identify any percussion difficulties. The Skelmanthorpe Band conducted by John Roberts has been engaged for this Workshop. Ample opportunity will be given to members of the NABBC and anyone present to contribute both verbally and practically during the presentation of each piece.

    It is proposed to allow 1hour 15 minutes for the exploration of each piece, with a break for light refreshments at some stage during the proceedings. This should result in a 5.30pm finish.

    In promoting this workshop the two Associations are keen to encourage a large attendance. In fact, in view of the success of previous years we are moving to larger and better equipped premises this year. The event provides an excellent opportunity for Players, Conductors, Administrators, Adjudicators and all who have an interest in Competitions to exchange views on the many varied aspects of Contest Promotion, Preparation and Adjudication.

    If you require any further information please contact Mal Brownbill by email or telephone.

    This is this coming Sunday folks - If you're coming and haven't let Malcolm know I'm sure he'd appreciate a heads up on numbers - it will be, as always, a very useful day :)

    We at Skelmanthorpe are certainly looking forward to the afternoon session as usual, though I don't think Simone will be having much to say apart from Hollywood!....

    Extra rehearsal on Saturday too...(v keen)

    Just to remind those coming in the afternoon - we are starting at 1.30pm with Plantagenets because Chris Davis will be speaking and needs to get back to Southampton
