Conducting Competitions - Applicants Video Guidance

In addition to the application pack received upon request, the NABBC has moved to further assist those intending to apply for our conductors competition.

Part of the application process involves a video of the applicant conducting an ensemble. To help give an idea of how this may work our President Russell Gray has prepared this short video clip as an example. These videos are not an instruction as to how videos must be done but merely a suggestion as to how they could be done.

Our sincere thanks to the Friary band for assisting Russell in the production of this clip.
