The European Brass Band Association is pleased to announce the invitation to the European Soloist Competition for Brass and Percussion Instruments to be held in conjunction with the European Brass Band Championships in Lille, France, next year.

The competitors who are selected to perform in Lille will give two performances (set-piece and own-choice) with piano, with the best three going forward to the Final on Thursday 28 April, when they will perform with Brass Band Nord Pas de Calais.

“We are very excited about the new format for the 2016 soloist competition, which is based on feedback and analysis of previous competitions. By having the number of competitors invited to Lille limited to 30 we can be sure that the standard will be very high. But we are also giving the soloists the opportunity to play both an own choice piece and a set-piece", says Ulf Rosenberg, president of European Brass Band Association.

Entries must be submitted no later than 31 January 2016.
