2020 NSW State Band Festival

A live streaming triumph


Team Brassbanned is excited to be broadcasting the 2020 NSW State Band Festival. We have been working closely with the wonderful Band Association of NSW, to help put together an online event to keep bands excited and rehearsing in 2020.

Bands have been encouraged to submit recordings of themselves performing a similar program to the regular State Band Championships – we will be streaming them out in grade order, complete with online adjudications and comments from the organisers.

A full ‘approximate’ timetable for Saturday is posted below. These times might change throughout the day – so tune in early to see exactly what we are up to… Sunday’s order will be posted later on Saturday!
