    Has anyone seen any entry details for the competition for 2006? I wrote to the Beeb asking about information and they sent me the link to the 2005 results and said it was too early to be thinking about the 2006 comp. Bearing in mind the closing date last year was 30th September, I'm a little worried about missing it.

    I emailed them and the bloke who replied didn't seem to have much of a clue what was going on, he wasn't convinced it was a BBC competition.

    Hi
    Are there any application forms for Young Brass Soloist 2006 yet? If not
    do u know when they are going to be released?

    Thanks
    Andy

    Hi Andy,

    And that, ladies and gentlemen, is where our license money goes! Unbelievable response.

    Considering this competition was advertised from about March last year, and had a closing date of September, if they've not even got it in the planning stages, it looks like a no no. I thinkits time to ring someone rather than messing around with e-mails.

    It does seem odd that there's no information around: I just checked the "Listen to the band" page to see if there was anything there - no joy, but at least they've got tMP on their Links page ;)

    Doesn't make sense that it is on at the prime time for areas? Or am i just being thick? Most brass players will be taking part in a regional contest around then?

    Exactly. I spoke to the folks at Radio 2 last week and they say its been very difficult to get the studio and that is the only date they can manage. I have confirmed all the area dates. It only actually clashes with the Midlands and Scotland.
