Welcome Back everyone – yes our first SCBF festival is about to take place for the first time since 2019 !

The performance times for the SCBF 2022 Regional Festival in Inveralmond Community High School in Livingston on Sunday the 4th. of December are now available to view in the TIMES tab.

In recognition of the fact that all bands and ensembles are in a major rebuilding stage post covid lock down, ALL bands performing on this day are automatically invited to the SCBF/ SSOF National Finals in Perth Concert Hall in March 2023. Additionally, we recognise that not all groups are ready to perform just yet ( November 2022 ), but will be by March 2023, therefore these groups are also invited to perform in Perth Concert Hall in March by making an entry on the SCBF /SSOF websites on or after Monday 16th. January 2023.

The closing date for all entries for the 2023 SCBF and SSOF Natioanal Finals in Perth Concert Hall is Monday 20th. February.

Orchestras, String Orchestras and ensembles of any format are encouraged to apply to perform.

Please encourage as many friends, family and supporters to come along and hear your performance – they really help create the festival atmosphere.

Looking forward to seeing you all again – Nigel Durno ( SCBF & SSOF Organiser 02/11/2022
