The talented youngsters of the 2018 European Youth Band will certainly be kept busy in Utrecht in May, with the announcement of a full week of concert and event appearances.
It will be the 15th time that the band, made up of 36 young players aged 18 — 22 from 16 different countries has come together — this year under the baton of the hugely popular conductor Ivan Meylemans.
They will initially meet in Utrecht in the Akoesticum in Ede on 28th April for seating auditions before embarking on a busy schedule of rehearsals and events.
EBBA President, Ulf Rosenberg, said: "Everyone in EBBA and ZIMIHC (the local organising company) is looking forward to meet and listen to the European Youth Brass Band 2018 under their conductor Ivan Meylemans."
