Roda Hall

During the 19th edition of WMC, the World Youth Brass Band (WYBB) will be assembled, consisting of the most talented brass and percussion players from around the world between the ages of 18 and 23. The group of 29 selected musicians will have the opportunity to rehearse and perform concerts together for a week under the direction of two top teachers/conductors.

WMC is a place where musicians from different cultures and backgrounds find each other to learn and make music together. With the WYBB, WMC wants to bring different brass band cultures together in Kerkrade and stimulate crossovers. The WYBB is a fantastic opportunity for talented youth to play and develop themselves at world level for a week.

Participating musicians come from Lithuania, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, Belgium, Norway, Switzerland, Great Britain, France, Luxembourg, New Zealand and the United States, among others.
