This site is building a comprehensive set of world-wide brass band contest results. It provides links between the various bands where they share conductors, test pieces etc., so it can easily be seen when a piece has been used and which band it was played by.

We need your help! Do you have contest results that are not in the database? Then please register and add them! Make your contribution to this unique project today. Got nothing to add? Look here.
