Auditions for the National Youth and National Children's Brass Bands of Great Britain are to be held on-line this year.
However, young players from across the UK are actively being encouraged to audition for both the National Youth and National Children's Brass Bands of Great Britain this Autumn following the success of the online courses held earlier this year
The decision has been made in light of the ongoing COVID-19 issues.
Prospective members will be asked to upload their performances for assessment by Friday 16th October before being contacted for an online interview in the last week of October which will include sight reading and scales as per the normal audition process.
NYBBGB Operations Manager Richard Milton told 4BR: "As an organisation we are committed to getting young musicians making live music together as soon as possible and ensuring this is done safely is paramount.
At this time the aim is still to run the Easter Course postponed from 2020 in 2021 and all the musicians who were expecting to be on that course have been invited back. The auditions this Autumn will be for the Summer Courses planned for July and August 2021."
