I hope that term two has started well for everyone, 2012 looks set to be a rewarding year.
On behalf of the Auckland Secondary Schools Music Festival Trust and our principal sponsor KBB Music Ltd, I welcome you all to register for this year’s KBB Music Festival.
The 2012 KBB Music Festival will be held from the 21st to the 25th of August at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell. Adjudicated sessions will take place from Tuesday to Friday, beginning with Symphony Orchestras and Chamber Orchestras then concluding with Concert Bands and Jazz Bands.
The Fringe Festival workshop sessions will take place on the morning of Saturday the 25th of August, and will be followed later that afternoon by the two Gala Concerts at 2:30 and 6:30pm.
The festival committee is pleased to announce that this year all participating groups will receive a free professional photograph of their ensemble. These will be available for collection along with adjudicator feedback summaries at the Gala Concerts. Schools, students and parents will be given the option to order additional copies of these photographs during the festival sessions.
Registrations for the festival are now open – register here. Applications will close on the 1st of July – no late entries can be accepted. All payments must be received by the festival organisers before August 1st.
I would like to stress the importance of carefully reading the 2012 festival rules. The rules document is not very long, but it contains information that affects all participants. Some of the rules have been updated for 2012.
Finally, please try fill in the online application form as accurately as possible, especially with regard to contact details and billing information.
I hope this is enough to get you all started. I look forward to receiving your applications as they come with the promise of an exciting festival this August.
