    I think hearty and thorough congratulations are due to Jan H, who has just qualified 'Summa Cum Laude' as he has announced on Facebook, but not, mysteriously on here. What was it Jan? (Masters, Doctorate, Baccalaureat?)

    Thank you for the congratulations. It was a band contest ;)

    Our youth band (in which I'm still allowed to play as a "helper" ;) ) got the highest possible grade yesterday at the "European Music Festival for Young People" in Neerpelt (North-East Belgium).

    It's a great festival for all youth bands (and "youthful bands" ;) ), which is organised every two years (the other year is for choirs). This year there were almost a 100 bands and ensembles from 22 countries (Europe but also Japan and Mexico), ranging from orchestras and wind bands to recorder ensembles and jazz bands. More than 3300 musicians in total. Check the festival's website:
    Some pictures of our band:
    there are also pictures of the parade and the awards ceremony. See if you can spot me ;)
