Have you considered entering your band into the WMC (World in Wind Music) 2017 Festival next July in Holland? There’s still time to enter, if you’re quick. Entries close at the end of the month.
WMC Kerkrade takes place in the south east corner of the Netherlands and is the world’s major international festival for wind music. Held every four years with more than 18,000 musicians taking part, there are many outdoor stages in the town centre as well as in large parts of the Dutch Province Limburg and the adjoining regions of Belgium and Germany.
The festival has the following categories: four divisions of brass bands; four divisions of concert contests for wind bands; two divisions of contests for percussion ensembles; and two divisions of all style marching/show bands.
Gill Chapman, Cecilia Singers, Berkshire.
Cath Danswan, Swindon Choral Society, Wiltshire.
