A bit early (not til early feb) but thought I'd get the ball rolling now that most details are out..
Test piece for the elitedivisjon (championship section) is 'Sketches from Nowhere' by Thomas Doss.
(His first work for brass band, his second will be the test piece for the 2010 Europeans.)
As it's going to be all open adjudication this year we can also give full info on the own choice section.
So here's all the runners, with conductors and own choice selection.
Eikanger-Bjørsvik Musikklag, Nick Childs
Titan's Progress, Hermann Pallhuber
Ila Brass Band, Thomas Rimul
The Trumpets of the Angels, Edward Gregson
Krohnengen Brass Band, Gary Peterson

I'm assuming that, as last year, we will have at least video coverage of the top two sections, and interviews and commentaries for the norwegian speakers
Game on, should be a good'un.
