2021 Yamaha South Australian State Band Championships
Unfortuantely due to current Covid restrictions and the uncertainty around our member bands being able to rehearse, the SABA Executive has made the decision to postpone the upcoming SA Band Champipnships to a later date which will be confirmed in the near future.
We thank all bands for their understanding and patience in these uncertain times.
Our State Championships provide a wonderful opportunity for member bands and players to perform music that will test them in a friendly competition format. It also provides a unique opportunity for audiences to hear our bands at their very best, and to see what SA banding has to offer.
SABA would like to thank our major sponsor Yamaha Music.
