Brass Band Conductors’ Association announces 2021 Virtual Conducting Competition The Brass Band Conductor’s Association (BBCA) has announced that it will once again be holding its flagship Conducting Competition, this year as a virtual event, with judging of the three finalists taking place online on June 27, 2021. 

This is an opportunity for conductors of all levels and nationalities to demonstrate their skills at conducting a band or ensemble by submitting videos of themselves in action.  Previous winners include Josh Geddes, Mark Edwards and Brendan Breslin, who have used the contest to launch careers in conducting.

The winner of the competition will receive a cash prize of £500, a year’s free membership of the Brass Band Conductors’ Association and a glass plaque.

BBCA President, Russell Gray, commented: "I am delighted we are able to run this competition again, albeit virtually. It has now become an important event internationally for emerging conductors and I encourage anyone interested to go ahead and enter. It’s also a great way to receive positive feedback from the professional panel of judges we engage.”

Discounts apply for those who enter and join as BBCA members, who will also receive an audio commentary on their performance, whether or not they are shortlisted for the final.

Applicants can enter the competition and upload their videos via the Brass Bands England website Events page which contains full details of the entry fee and competition rules.  The closing date is May 3.
