The European Youth Brass Band will be welcomed for their 2014 residential seminar and the festival plays host to the 6th European Solo competition which attracts Europe's talented musicians to perform at a showcase event.


    A Legacy for the Future

    An innovative approach to the festival's programme enables Scotland's creativity to be presented to local and international audiences through commissioned works written by Scottish composers, performed by all the participating bands and to be offered as a legacy for the future.

    The European Festival of Brass 2014 offers a unique opportunity to celebrate the many facets of brass music and Scotland's diverse musical heritage. The Scottish Brass Band Association looks forward to welcoming visitors and participants from across the globe to experience this world-class festival.
