The Manitoba Band Association will be holding their annual Solo & Ensemble Festival on Thursday. Tune into hear a few of the bands this week on Classic 107 LIVE! beginning with the Linden Christian Grade 12 Ensemble's Alexandra Funk (flute) & Cadence Penner (cello).

MBA's oldest initiative (established 1977) is an adjudicated non-competitive festival which offers a performance setting for woodwind, brass and percussion players. Each performance slot is 10 minutes long and includes a verbal adjudication. Participants perform as a soloist or in ensembles of up to six members. Music is selected by the participants. Piano accompaniment is optional. Participants also receive written comments and a certificate of participation. The annual festival is held in January in Winnipeg. ChloƩ Plamondon is currently the chair of this project for the MBA.

Below, watch two members of the Linden Christian Grade 12 Ensemble: Alexandra Funk (flute) & Cadence Penner (cello).
