WBAS Youth Band Festival
As Singapore gradually opens for the resumption of arts activities, Wind Bands Association of Singapore (WBAS) will be organising the annual WBAS Youth Band Festival to encourage youth musicians to continue making music in a safe environment, rejuvenating the youth band community in Singapore.
In this youth band festival, participants will take part in rehearsals and workshops spanning a total of four days and perform at the Finale Concert at the Esplanade Concert Hall on 20th of December 2021.
The festival is open to all fully vaccinated musicians who play a wind band instrument aged between 12 to 25 years old. Musicians who are keen to take part in the festival will need to undergo an audition process. To benefit the participants, WBAS seeks to achieve diversity by enhancing the group dynamics musically, intellectually and socially. WBAS will select participants based on their audition performance, both as a soloist and as a band musician.
