Brisbane 17-21 April
Queensland Band Association (QBA) is proudly hosting the 2014 Yamaha National Band Championships in the Queensland capital. The National Band Championships of Australia attracts over 80 brass and concert bands every year. Bands from New Zealand, France, Japan and the United Kingdom have competed over recent years in this elite event. We already have confirmed the entries from two Japanese Bands for the 2014 event.
The Brisbane Nationals will be staged over the five days of Easter 2014 at St. Laurence's College in South Brisbane. The event will feature four on-stage events and a day of solo and ensemble competitions.
In addition, the Parade of Bands will bring together thousands of musicians in the heart of the city. It will provide the people of Brisbane an opportunity to see and hear skilful playing and tremendous precision marching.
Queensland Band Association President, Annette Ries, said "Brisbane has much to offer the thousands of musicians who will descend on our beautiful city over the Easter break in April. First class venues, stunning weather and champion bands from Australia, Japan and New Zealand will all make for a memorable and prestigious musical event!"
