The National Band Championships is a five day event consisting of three distinct Championships, these are:
This is where the top brass and concert bands from around Australia and the world battle it out to try and take home an Australian National Championships title.
Where the brass bands (and some concert bands too) put their marching ability to the test participating in the Parade of Bands to see who will become Australia’s next top marching band.
Party and Solo Championship
Brass, woodwind and percussion soloist play a test piece against others on their instrument(s) to see who this year’s champion will be. Quartets and quintets also play off against each other to see which small ensemble will take home the title of Australia’s best.
In 2014 this massive event will be held in Birsbane, run by the Queensland Band Association (QBA). The QBA is pleased to welcome 75 brass and concert bands and 365 solo and ensemble competitors from around Australia as well as from Japan and Hong Kong.
