2018 WWSED

Saturday 27th January, in the Memorial Hall, Burry Port

After the success of previous West Wales Solo & Ensemble Days, Burry Port Town Band is delighted to confirm that next years’ event will be held on Saturday 27th January 2018 at the Memorial Hall, Burry Port. The event will begin at 10am with the Youth Band classes followed by the Solo, Duet, Trio and Ensembles, although we will be unable to confirm actual timings until we have received our entries.

We hope that the event will be well supported by brass players from schools, ensembles and bands from the South Wales area.

Traditionally, competitions such as this included separate ‘Air Varie’ and ‘Slow Melody’ sections for soloists but with today’s wide-ranging repertoire it has been decided to make each solo section own-choice with a separate prize for the best ‘Slow Melody’. Every entrant will receive an award, which will be ranked as ‘Gold’, ‘Silver’, ‘Bronze’ or ‘Highly Commended’

We are arranging for a photographer to be available at the festival so that all performers can have their photographs taken, although no performer is under any obligation to purchase. Please therefore ensure that you have parental or guardian consent available with you on the day (or in writing).

If you have any queries in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact Nils Richards, the coordinator on 07969 481064 or by email at wwsed@burryporttownband.co.uk

Further details and entry form will be posted here shortly.
