36 youngsters from 15 different European representative nations will form the 2023 European Youth Brass Band in Malmö.
It is the nineteenth time that the ensemble has taken an integral part in the festival with the youngsters aged between 18 and 22 being led by conductor Per-Otto Johansson.
The band will meet for the first time on April 29th for seating auditions before undertaking a busy week of rehearsal and concert activity as part of the 44th European Championship event including the sold out Gala Concert on the Saturday evening.
There they will share the stage with defending European Champion, Cory conducted by Philip Harper. They will also perform at the European Soloist Competition with Concord Brass, give a concert in the Allhelgona Church in Lund and be part of the official opening ceremony to the festival at Malmo Town Hall.
