2016 WWSED

Saturday 18th June, in Burry Port’s Memorial Hall.

After the success of previous West Wales Solo & Ensemble Days, Burry Port Town Band is very excited to confirm that next years event will be held on Saturday 18th June 2016 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. We are very excited that we’ve engaged some talented, local adjudicators again for 2016, and we believe it will be an ideal opportunity for youth bands, players and ensembles the chance to show their talents to a wider audience.

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).  In recent years, performers have commented on the quality and value for money for many of the packages available.

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.
