IMG Secretary Greg Small commented “We’re pleased to be back again in 2023, with a full season of events taking place across the country. This should enable as many participants as possible to take advantage of our performance opportunities.”
“We realise that many bands and corps are still rebuilding after Covid, so we’re continuing with a number of measures that we introduced last year to help them with this. Firstly, all participants are welcome to perform in exhibition rather than in competition if they wish to. This will enable them to perform in a no pressure environment, where they can introduce new members to the activity. Also we will be keeping costs to zero for all participants. IMG has never charged for membership or registrations, but this year we will again waive contest entry fees, which will make our events as accessible as possible.”
Greg added “We’re also delighted that WGI will be coming back to the UK again in 2023. The Basildon Sporting Village was the venue of the WGI UK Regional in 2019 and is an excellent facility. I’d like to thank Ron Nankervis and everyone at WGI for their continued support.”
The Indoor Music Games are about achieving the best combination of both excellence and spectator enjoyment. It also aims to provide performance and competition opportunities to younger performers where they can grow and develop in a safe environment, whilst giving them an enjoyable and educational experience. As IMG competitions are open to all, IMG groups can be Performance Ensembles, Brass bands, Wind bands, Alumni corps, small drum corps/marching bands, School or College bands, etc.
The IMG also offers marching bands the opportunity to compete much earlier in the year, so those who wish to can then go on to participate in the summer season. Shows will again feature Winds, Percussion, Music Ensemble and Concert Classes in 2023, with Music Ensemble and Concert Classes using the Gold, Silver or Bronze award placing system.
