The Association of Brass Band Adjudicators is pleased to announce that their annual Regional Test Piece Workshop will be held following the Association’s AGM on Sunday January 21st 2018 at the home of Fodens Band – Bradwall Village Hall, Bradwall Road, Sandbach, Cheshire, CW11 1RG. The Workshop, commencing at one o’clock, will cover the Regional Test Pieces set for Sections 2, 3 and 4. The presenters (to be announced at a later date) will explore each work in detail; pinpointing possible pitfalls; suggesting rehearsal techniques; and discussing performance approach. Simone Rebello will be on hand to consider the percussion requirements and technical challenges of each work. There will also be time set aside for questions from attendees on each work.
The workshop is free and open to all with an interest in the pieces – be they player, conductor or audience member – and the Association’s aim is to provide an informative insight into each work as a useful tool to aid contest preparation.
