The Swedish brass band movement has a new champion… The king is dead - long live the king!
Stockholm Brass Band is the new Swedish Brass band champions. And that’s a real chocker for most of us. WindCorp Brass Band has been leagues before Stockholm when I’ve heard them but somehow the managed to nick the title from WindCorp.
Don’t get me wrong - Stockholm is a great band with some truly amazing players (like Håkan Björkman for example). But WindCorp has loads of experience from many, many brass band competitions - something that there is not an abundance of in Stockholm.
My congratulations to Stockholm! Well deserved! And very impressive since the preparations has been surrounded with a lot sickness and problems to get a full band to rehearsals.
