WABA (West Australian Band Association) is both a competition and a festival. The experiences gained at this event can be put towards competing at the National Band Championships that are held each year in a different state on national rotation. It allows many Concert and Brass bands an opportunity to compete at a local level, and also giving bands a chance to showcase their skills.The competition also gives soloists an opportunity to show off their skills. This weekend at UWA the Western Australian Band Association State Band Championships are on.
Fiona talked to Stu Bennion, the President of the West Australian Band Association to tell us more about this competition.
