The Executive Committee of the Scottish Brass Band Association has met to discuss recent events concerning the National Youth Brass Bands of Scotland. It came to the following decision.

Resolution by the SBBA Executive Committee - 18th November 2013

The Executive Committee of the Scottish Brass Band Association declares its complete confidence in its President, George Burt, and his efforts in reaching an amicable agreement with Richard Evans two weeks ago.

In order to steer both NYBBS and SBBA through this difficult time, the SBBA Executive Committee empowers the President to take charge of NYBBS (effectively thus replacing the NYBBS Board) and to take all necessary measures to maintain all three bands of NYBBS.

In furtherance of these decisions, George Burt makes the following announcements:

“Appointments of Musical Directors of the National Children’s Band (Gordon Evans) and the National Youth Reserve Band (John Boax) have been agreed. Appointments of Tutors for these bands have also been agreed.

The process of selecting and appointing a new Musical Director for the NYYBS senior band has commenced.

The process of seeking appointments of Tutors for the NYBBS senior band is underway.

A job description for a new Course Director has already been drawn up and will be advertised in the near future.

This year’s advertised auditions for existing NYBBS senior band players will not take place. Auditions for new players wishing to join the NYBBS senior band will continue to go ahead as planned. All the players who have already submitted their application forms will be contacted separately to advise them of this.

Arrangements for the location of the summer courses for all three bands have been agreed and will be announced separately (the dates for these are 27 July – 2 August for NYBBS senior band, 28 July – 2 August for National Children’s Band and National Youth Reserve Band).

Consultation with the MDs of the three NYBBS bands will be held to decide and agree on the future policies for these bands.

In consultation with my fellow SBBA trustees, I will bring forward to the Executive Committee proposals for the future governance of NYBBS.”
