State Solo Results


To all aspiring and new conductors;

We are excited to announce that we will be holding the first in a series of planned conductor workshops on the above dates!

Our retreat will be held in the lovely Blue Mountains, west of Sydney so why not make it a weekend away! More details about this exciting weekend will be made available soon. This workshop is aimed at beginners or those that haven’t been conducting for a while and wish to do a refresher.  We will have a local band participating in the workshop that will play easy music for the conductors to work with.

If you would like to register your interest in attending this event and so that we can provide you with more information, please click here.

This retreat would not be possible without the assistance of Create NSW so we are looking to fill all spots available and to make this a very enjoyable weekend (with some hard work in the middle of it!) for all involved.

Our intention is to be able to take this and other workshops planned for 2018 on the road and visit as many bands and areas in NSW/ACT as possible.  We can only do this with the banding community support.
