2021 Yamaha South Australian State Band Championships
The SABA Executive has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 State Band Championships.
It has not been an easy decision, but timings for rehearsal preparation and the business of bands during October and November make it very difficult to schedule.
We thank bands again for their understanding and patience as we negotiate our way through 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.
