Online Solo & Quartet Contest

SWBBA are delighted to announce our new initiative, an Online Solo and Quartet Contest.

Online Solo & Quartet Contest [2021]

SWBBA are delighted at the huge success of our first venture into the digital contest age. Many thanks go to Trevada Music for sponsoring the event, and also to Steve Sykes, Adjudicator. It was a mammoth task for him to decide the winners from 183 video uploads in 14 different classes, plus choosing the special prize recipients for Most Promising player under 12yrs, Best Solo performance, Most Promising Tuba player and Best Overall Tuba player. We do hope he has recovered! We were extremely appreciative that renowned Trombonist Stephen Sykes chose special awards for the Most Promising Trombone player under 18yrs and the Best Overall Trombone Player.
