World Champions Manger Musikklag re-enter the top ten with Kerkrade win.

World Champions Manger Musikklag celebrate

 

The latest World of Brass — 4barsrest.com Rankings see significant changes in the top 20 following the recent season-ending contests.

Seindorf Beaumaris moves up eight places following its victory at the All-England Masters International, while the ever-consistent Virtuosi GUS is up five after its recent runner-up spots at Kettering and Birmingham, the latter of which saw Black Dyke return to winning form following recent disappointments.

Manger Musikklag’s World Championship victory sees the former European Champion return to the top ten, while Cory’s runner-up spot keeps the Welsh giant far enough ahead at the top to ensure the on-going lead regardless of the British Open result in September, when the next update will be published.
