In this podcast we look back at the New South Wales State Championships held in Penrith's Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre, in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, Australia on 26-27 August, 2006.

This podcast includes interviews with Waratah's MD Ron Prussing; Gunnedah's MD Danny Alexander; the adjudicator Mr Kevin Jarrett MBE; and NSW and National Band Council of Australia President Robert Bedwell; and Willoughby's MD Andrew Snell.

A sound clip from the winning performance in the A Grade Section, Waratah playing Peter Graham's 'Harrisons Dream' is used during the podcast.
