Brass in Concert 2021 draw postponed

Monday 21 June, 2021

The draw for the 2021 Brass in Concert Championship has been postponed following an outbreak of COVID-19 at the school at which it was due to take place.

British Bandsman previously reported that the draw for the prestigious contest was going to be made by children from the mini band at Ringway Primary School in Sheepwash, Northumberland, on June 21. The youngsters were going to give a short performance, displaying the skills they have acquired since moving on from the whole class baritone project in which they started.

A spokesperson for Brass in Concert advised that new plans would be put in place regarding the draw very soon.
