The soloist competition will happen in conjunction with the 44th European Brass Band Championships in association with World of Brass.

A maximum of 20 applicants will be selected from video submissions.By having the number of competitors invited to Malmö limited to 20 we can be sure that the standard will be very high.’ says Ulf Rosenberg, President of the European Brass Band Association. 

The three finalists chosen by a distinguished international jury will perform a concerto or extended concert-piece chosen by the EBBA Music Commission with a Championship Section brass band in a final Gala Concert on Wednesday 3 May.
