We are pleased to announce the final line-up of players who will form the 14th edition of the European Youth Brass Band, which will meet in Lille, France, in the week prior to the 2016 European Brass Band Championships.

The players will be conducted by Erik Janssen from the Netherlands.
The band will be managed by Jean Luc Petitprez.

EYBB will perform at

-  the final of the European Soloist Competition Thursday 28 April
-  the Opening Ceremony in Lille Opera House Friday 29 April
-  the Grand Gala Concert Saturday 30 April
-  the closing concert after the 3rd European Youth Brass Band Contest on Sunday 1 May

The band will have a very busy schedule of rehearsals and concerts, but there will also be time to socialise and, of course, the young players will have a chance to listen to the best brass bands in the world competing in the European Brass Band Championship in Lille.

Conservatoire b&wConductor Erik Janssen will undoubtedly give the young musicians a fantastic experience and the rehearsal facilities at the Conservatoire de Douai promise to be some of the best we have ever had for the EYBB. Everyone involved with EBBA and the Eurofestival 2016 in Lille is looking forward to more terrific performances from this very important ensemble.
