NYBBGB Auditions go Live
The National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain is delighted to announce that live audition dates are returning this autumn for those who would like the opportunity to join one of the bands for 2022.
The NYBBGB Children's Band auditions are for young players of brass band instruments (including percussion) aged from 8 - 13 of approximately grade 5 standard or higher. The Youth Band caters for older students, 12 years or above at audition, and the standard is approximately grade 8. Please note you do not need to have passed the grade exams to audition. The band is particularly keen to hear from bass trombone and bass players.
The venues and dates are:
Sunday 25th September - St Dennis, Cornwall
Saturday 9th October - Ratby, Leicestershire
Sunday 10th October - Amersham, Buckinghamshire
Saturday 16th October - Birmingham, West Midlands
Sunday 17th October - Hade Edge, Yorkshire
Saturday 23rd October - Salford, Greater Manchester
Sunday 24th October - Peterlee, County Durham
Each session will conclude with a workshop run by one of the NYBBGB tutors. Last year all the NYBBGB auditions were held online and this remains an option for those for whom the dates and venues do not suit.
Further details are available via the band’s website.
To apply for an audition please apply using this audition form.
