We are excited that these events will be live-streamed via Brassbanned.com on Sunday, 8th November, 2020.

Entries for the Duets, Trios, Quartets and Ensembles (5 to 15 players) are asked to submit their entry no later than Friday, 25th September and their recordings and a PDF of their music by Friday, 9th October. Age groups are Under 15, Under 19 and Open. Age is as at the date of contest (November) not the date of when we would have originally held the Party events. Music is all Own Choice.

For all Party events, only a winner in each event will be announced. Following the announcement of the winner, all adjudication recordings will be emailed to bands along with appropriate certificates. Trophies/plaques are available for delivery/collection, and all performances (school bands may be subject to additional permissions) will be retained for bands to see on the BANSW YouTube Channel.

Time Limits:

Under 15 Duets, Trios, Quartets and Ensembles – 10 minutes.
Under 19 and Open Duets, Trios, Quartets and Ensembles – 12 minutes.

Entry fees are as follows:

-Duets and Trios are $15 per entry.

You can now pay for your entry fees at time of registering for your event or elect for an invoice to be issued.  Once you have registered there will be a message to open the Shop page to allow for events to be paid.
