SCBF & SSOF National Finals 2023

Scottish Concert Band Festival & Scottish String & Orchestra Festival

National Finals 2023 – Perth Concert Hall

Saturday & Sunday 18th. & 19th. March 2023

A great opportunity to get your ensemble or band or orchestra back performing live on stage. In order to achieve this, and for this year only, the National Finals of both of the above events are open to groups with no prequalification required.

The online ENTRY FORMS go live on Monday 16th. January, and the closing date for entries is Friday 3rd. of February – there are a limited number of performance times on each day, with times being allocated on a first come basis. All performances are professionally filmed and recorded.

The first SCBF Regional festival in three years took place in Inveralmond Community High School in December 2022 – with fourteen ensembles performing, it was a huge success, and the standard of playing was amazing given the years of musical silence which the covid pandemic has imposed upon our communities.

Please consider either coming to perform live on stage with your ensemble OR coming to listen to the great regeneration that is taking place across Scotland of our bands and orchestras – your support is really welcome.
