SESSION D4 MARIMBAS

MARIMBAS (SOLO, DUET OR GROUP) have become extremely popular and are placed in this syllabus due to several requests from schools.   

  • Candidates may perform a maximum of three (3) pieces whether solo, duet or group but are reminded that should they wish to play two (2) pieces they should fill in a separate entry form accompanied by the appropriate fee for each entry.
  • Groups are also allowed to perform MEDLEYS.  If so, please indicate it on the entry form.
  • Candidates are limited to a maximum of 10 minutes for their performance.
  • Candidates should provide their own instruments.  The festival provide 6 standard orchestral music stands.
  • Entrants ARE NOT REQUIRED TO INCLUDE A COPY OF THEIR MUSIC WITH THE ENTRY FORM, BUT ARE REMINDED TO

SUBMIT A COPY OF THEIR MUSIC TO THE ADJUDICATOR SECRETARY ON THE DAY OF PERFORMANCE.  This copy may not be returned.  Sheet Music is not required where band members are not able to read music and/or not playing from sheet music.

NOTE:  Should teachers would like each candidate to have his/her own diploma for a group performance then each member of the group must pay in addition to the entry fee, an additional R10.00 per person.  Please ensure that you indicate it as such on the entry form and that you write the  name and surname of each candidate on the entry form OR additional piece of paper stapled to the entry form.
