Monday 20 September, 2021

Budding solo stars are being reminded to submit their applications for the Willebroek Solo Contest, to be in with a chance of winning the impressive, €5,000 prize fund.

The new competition will take place in the Municipal Theatre in Willebroek on October 23. Four jury members will work across the different age categories, including international Besson soloist Bastien Baumet, pictured above, who commented: “I'm very honoured to be part of the jury of this competition. An event like this is always a great opportunity to progress, compete with the best young players, meet new friends and build projects for the future. I invite all brass players from Europe to participate.

Each performance is recorded by Yuja and a live report can be followed via CU Brass. Registration is possible until September 23 via the website of Brassband Willebroek.
