The B-section for the European Brass Band Championships 2013 in Oslo will be cancelled due to only one confirmed entry to the section this year.

Following this the European Brass Band Association will evaluate the future format for the EBBC B-section. This will be an important topic for the EBBA meetings in Oslo in May.

EBBA has agreed with a proposal initiated by the Scottish Brass Band Association, to explore the possibilities of having a 'European Youth Brass Band Open Contest' at the 2014 event which is being held in Perth, Scotland.

Andrew Duncan, SBBA Development Manager said, 'We feel that a European Youth Brass Band Open Contest will be a positive addition to the European Festival of Brass 2014, which includes the 2014 European Brass Band Championships, and this new event will enhance brass band development throughout Europe."
