Sydney Metro Band Branch


Sydney Metropolitan Solos & Party Competition

The 2023 Solo & Ensemble competition was held at De La Salle College Caringbah on the weekend of May 27th and 28th.The adjudicators for the competition were Warwick Tyrell, Colin Grisdale and Daniel Blanch.

We were pleased to see many bands participating and coming back to live music and competitions after such long breaks because of Covid. Our fabulous team of volunteers made the weekend run smoothly from start to finish.

The weekend went extremely well with competitors and supporters very happy with the location, the organisation and in particular the constructive and supportive feedback provided to our participants by our adjudicators. We have also received many compliments from our competitors praising our official accompanists, Hank Xiang and Ingrid Sakurovs.
