Want to network with other band conductors?

On Tuesday 21 September, the Brass Band Conductors’ Association will be hosting an online networking session providing a chance to chat to other band conductors from the comfort of your sofa.

The event will also offer a chance to meet a number of the BBCA’s local Area Representatives and Executive Committee, to gain advice and ask questions, making sure you’re getting the most out of the Association’s support offer available to conductors. Plus, there’ll be some news and updates on BBCA activity and future plans.

The event will also see the feedback of the results of the organisation’s national Conducting Survey, which is currently open for those involved in brass band conducting to share their views and opinions. Whether you are a BBCA member or not, the survey offers a chance to have your say on key issues in brass band conducting and to help shape the future of the support offer for the conducting community. The survey will remain open until Monday 13 September.

The organisation’s new Chair, James Holt, said: “One of the key benefits that the BBCA can offer conductors is a support network – a place for conductors to meet, collaborate and discuss in what is ordinarily an isolated role. Member events such as this one are designed to engage, inspire and provoke discussion, bringing together the vast array of experiences of our membership. We hope that conductors will enjoy this chance to get together virtually ahead of what I’m sure will be a busy return to live events, projects and performances.”

Those wishing to participate in the BBCA Virtual Networking Event must register for BBCA membership in order to be eligible to attend. You can find information on joining the BBCA or view the full range of BBCA member benefits on offer by visiting the Brass Bands England website.

The Zoom session will take place 7 – 8.30pm on 21st September, and places can be booked via the BBE Events page.
