October is here; the start of a new academic year; the start of a new season, however… NCBF are keen to support your musical endeavours, particularly in these continuous COVID-19 times.
If you are needing advise about a risk assessment template for your upcoming rehearsal (hopefully soon), contact Making Music: www.makingmusic.org.uk OR 020 7939 6030.
As promised back in June, here is an update about ncbf in these continuous COVID-19 times.
We know that any rehearsals that could be scheduled at present are limited by a number of factors, therefore in the meantime ncbfwish to support and encourage ensemble playing, and invite you to take part in our FREEncbf initiative - ncbf Lite. Aimed at smaller ensembles from within bands. Consider:
Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Double Reed Ensembles | Wind Trio, Quartet, Quintet, Sextet etc. | Trumpet, Horn, Lower Brass Ensembles | Brass Trio, Quartet, Quintet, Sextet etc. | Percussion Ensemble | Jazz Trio, Quartet, Quintet, Sextet etc. | Little Big Band | Flexiband
Submit a 15 minute non-edited video of your selected programme together with pdf copies of scores/lead sheets. In return you will receive a written adjudication from ncbf experts, a completed ncbf Criteria Sheet and an Award Certificate (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze) which will be sent to you - there is no deadline for this FREE ncbfLite submission.
Bands originally invited to perform at the ncbf 2020 Nationals will automatically be invited to participate in the planned ncbf 2021 Nationals at RNCM on Saturday 10th & 11th April 2021
Your band's development is our aim at all times and ncbf are keen to support this - if you are able to rehearse as previously, that is fantastic - if you are having to adjust and adapt, we are here to help.
