With the on-going world-wide COVID-19 pandemic still in effect, BCPA has encountered a situation where facilities are not renting suitable and sufficient rooms to external entities. Thus, the November 2021 Mini-Gathering will be conducted again in an online format.
Players will enter the Mini-Gathering through the BCPA Registration Site, then record and upload their performances to YouTube during the defined period, then complete a form with music details and YouTube link and submit. Specific instructions, including tune requirements and rules and special requirements for the Grades 1 & 2 Piping, Grades 1 & 2 Snare Drumming, and Intermediate Tenor Drumming events at the November 2021 Mini-Gathering are found in the Information Guide providing important details.
The November 2021 competition is being announced now with details to follow in late November for the February 2022 Mini-Gathering (whether it will be in-person or online).
Registration for the 2021 November BCPA Online Mini-Gathering is now available at the BCPA Registration Site
