October 2020 - to all bands interested in National Concert Band Festival, NCBF are announcing a number of initiatives over the next few months under the banner of ncbf Extra to assist the development of your band, the first of these ncbf Lite is FREE and available now. See details below.
As promised back in June, here is an update about ncbf in these continuous COVID-19 times.
