Want to try your hand at judging?

If you want to have a go at finding out what its like to be an adjudicator, then why not give it a go in Stevenage...

Aibba
  The Association of Brass Band Adjudicators is running the initiative in Stevenage

The Association of Brass Band Adjudicators have informed 4BR that there are still a few places left for 11-18-year olds interested in joining the Young Adjudicators scheme being held at the forthcoming London & Southern Counties Regional Championships on the weekend of the 16th/17th March.

Fun day

The initiative is designed to be a fun day for young musicians who are interested in finding out more about the process of adjudication.

It will see each person provided with a score of the Second Section test-piece, meet with the official adjudicators backstage before the start of the section and be mentored by David Ashworth, an executive member of the AoBBA.

They will also receive a complimentary ticket to the contest for their accompanying adult, gain an understanding of how to read a score and gain an invaluable experience of what it's like to be 'in the box'.

The initiative is designed to be a fun day for young musicians who are interested in finding out more about the process of adjudication4BR

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
