The Bandlink Riverina Workshops are being held in 2021 in place of the Riverina Combined Schools Music (Concert Band) Camp.
Led by professional tutors and experienced conductors, the program involves a series of two-day workshops consisting of large concert band and smaller tutorial sessions, bringing specialised skills to country NSW students.
Bandlink caters for concert band instrumentalists (along with bass guitarists who read notation) of all levels, from beginner to advanced.
